Paras lashes out at CAN, says: Either work or quit

National team skipper Paras Khadka today lashed out on the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) asking the cricket governing body to either quit or work. 


Paras and the entire Nepali camp was left fuming for not giving enough support to national team especially at the time when Nepal are preparing for the two big tournaments and calling the preparation for two big tournaments as “disappointing”. 


The national team had returned on Thursday after completing their 10-day New Delhi tour where they played seven practice matches, winning six and losing one. The team had planned for few more practice sessions at the TU Stadium from today but CAN failed to provide them practice pitches and the ground as it chose to open the U-19 Regional Selection Cricket Tournament for Region No 3 (Kathmandu).


“There is support from CAN but its not enough. We as a player have always given our best but its frustrating if the team which is going to compete in the World Cup Qualifiers is not provided with ground for training,” Paras told reporters at the TU Stadium. 


With no ground and practice pitches available, the cricketers were seen doing fitness session just beside a little space left at the boundary rope. Paras said it was a high time for CAN.


“If any player goes out of form or he doesn’t play well, he is supposed to stay out and same should be with CAN. If people from CAN are not ready to work they should either quit or work. There are so many members in the CAN but people to work are very less. Under these conditions, those working will also have to share the blame,” added Paras.


“If CAN is not willing to provide basic facilities to players then they should stop talking about big things,” the skipper added. “The thing that everyone should understand is we are in the verge of playing World Cup and in our final stage preparation, we don’t have any option with another tournament going on here,” he said.
