Venkatapathy Raju to shape Nepali spinners

Former Indian national team spinner Venkatpathy Raju will help the Nepali spinners shape up their skills for the upcoming ICC World Cricket League Division-II tournament to be held in Namibia from January 17-24.


ACC Development Officer Raju recently helped the spinners from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in their run-up to the 2015 World Cup to be held jointly in Australia and New Zealand.


Raju played for India in the 1992 and 1996 World Cups. Apart from Raju, another ACC Development Officer Rumesh Ratnayake – the former Sri Lankan pace bowler – will also assist Nepali cricketers who are preparing for one of the most important tournaments of their cricketing history.


Raju – who is famous for his painstaking two-hours of stay in the crease as a night watchman during India’s tour of New Zealand in the 1990 – will arrive in Kathmandu on December 25.


Rumesh is a frequent visitor of Nepal facilitating Nepali cricketers with skills and will arrive in Kathmandu on December 22. Nepal will meet the Netherlands, Namibia, Canada, Kenya and Uganda in Division-II.
