The national cricket team’s visa complications have been solved and the team on Tuesday left for New Delhi before leaving for Bermuda to participate at the ICC World Cricket League Division-III.
There was a chaos in the Nepali camp and one of the most worried person was coach Pubudu Dassanayake who had been wanting to get the issue solved as soon as possible. CAN general secretary Ashok Nath Pyakurel informed that Nepal will now collect all visas from the British High Commission in New Delhi from where they will board a British Airlines flight to London and ultimately to Bermuda.
The Nepali camp was left ruing the visa delay – which is said to have been made by the British High Commission in New Delhi – as they had planned to acclimatise themselves to the local conditions. Nepali team will now be ahead of the tournament schedule and will get opportunity to adapt themselves to the local conditions. Nepal are also scheduled to play a friendly match against Bermuda-XI on April 25 before they take on archrivals USA in the Division-III opener.
Bermuda, Italy, Oman and Uganda are the other teams in the Division-III which will send two teams into the 2014 ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier. The 10-team World Cup Qualifier will also send the two finalists into the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
