Nepal’s middle order batsman Sharad Vesawkar believes that ACC Emerging Teams Cup is all about coping with a high level of cricket.
The ACC Emerging Teams begins from August 17-25 in Singapore where Nepal will play against the likes of U-23 teams from Indian and Pakistan along with a full strength side of Afghanistan.
“We will get to play good teams that will have good players and playing against them is just about how we cope with the tough situations. Certainly we have been playing a quality cricket for a long time and this tournament will particularly enable us to weigh ourselves,” said Sharad as the national team prepared to leave for a temporarily built indoor nets at the Satdobato Shooting Range after rain spoilt the early period of their training at TU Stadium.
Sharad said that he would like to continue the momentum that he has been getting for the last one year. “I have always tried to give my best representing the country and hopefully I will be able to do better in Singaopre as well,”added the middle order batsman who featured with an unbeaten 50 when Nepal lifted the ICC World Cricket League Division-III title in Bermuda on May5 defeating Uganda in the final.
With three new faces sneaking in the national fold, Sharad was glad to see the process involved in it. Seamers Avinash Karn and Ram Naresh Giri have been included for the first time in national team along with bowling all rounder Sagar Pun. Sagar had played for the national team during the ACC Twenty20 and this will be his first 50-over tournament.
“We must say that we are going through a good process. The three new members in the team are the players who will be representing the country in the future and hope we can probably get the best out of them,” the right-handed batsman added.
