Nepal’s national team coach Dav Whatmore is set to embark on a lengthy journey of conducting a high-performance clinic all across the country.
The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) is working with National Sports Council, the country’s supreme body of sports, to run the clinic which will be conducted across all the seven provinces of Nepal. Whatmore will be conducting a four-day clinic in each province.
The programme will run through end of March and April. Whatmore will begin the programme up front in Province 1, the eastern part of the country where the game and its performance has declined for over a decade.
“Taking the national coach to every province will create a lot of interest in local players. It will help the local coaches learn the modern ways of coaching from the best coach in the business. It will surely encourage young kids to take up cricket, CAN said on Monday.
In a recent interview with cricketingnepal, Whatmore had said that he would want to see the hidden talents who have not been able to come to the scene being confined in their own area.
Whatmore, who took over the job in early January, has not been able to be tested in internationals after one after another tour of Nepal got postponed due to the pandemic.
The 1996 World Cup winning coach has now agreed to travel across the country to take the game’s basic at local level.
