CAN called players for closing camp…

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on मंगलवार, अप्रील 27, 2010

Himalayan Times, KATHMANDU:

Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) today named a preliminary 20-member squad for the ICC World Cricket League Division-IV slated for August in Italy.

The cricketers will undergo closed camp training here from May 1. All 14 cricketers, who were part of the team that defeated the USA in the World Cricket League (WCL) Division-V final here in February, were recalled for the camp.

Among the players called for the closed camp were Paras Khadka, Gyanendra Malla, Shakti Gauchan, Sharad Vesawkar, Mahesh Chhetri, Anil Kumar Mandal, Dipendra Chaudhary, Basant Regmi, Binod Das, Sanjam Regmi, Rahul Kumar BK, Mehboob Alam, Binod Bhandari, Amrit Bhattarai, Naresh Bahadur Budhayer, Subhash Khakurel, Manjit Shrestha, Prithu Banskota, Sunam Gautam and Pradeep Airee.

Apart from Nepal and the USA, the tournament also includes Italy, Tanzania, Argentina and Cayman Islands. The tournament is part of the 2015 World Cup qualifiers.

It is really nice to know CAN called the players so early which could be called as krambhangata (breaking the continuity). CAN was famous for making 4 or 5 weeks close camp for any tournament. Now calling players so early, they could select players and give them more practice matches.

I want to request CAN to organize a tournament with ‘A’ teams from our neighbor four test playing nations where our players can get enough practice  and learn from the difficult times at these matches.

If not possible to organise a tournament then invite some teams from test team and send our team to the test playing countries.

The Final: NEPAL vs Afghanistan

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on शुक्रवार, अप्रील 9, 2010

Today is the final day of the this ACC Trophy Elite 2010, where Nepal and Afghanistan is fighting for the title which they have not got yet.

This is the great opportunity to Nepal to get a title under their belt after getting WCL div 5 title in February and a much needed boost for upcoming div 4 tournament at Italy in August.

In the other end, Afghanistan is as strong as ever and in this tournament, they are much stronger after arriving their VC Mohammad Nabi who was very crucial in their wins against nepal in the past. But they have nothing to get from this tournament after being already in higher stage but Nepal has to prove themselves, they are not minnows anymore and have enough to upset any team like they did in U19 level.

let see what happen in the field. hopes high for Nepal…. go Nepal go..

The Semifinal: NEPAL Vs Malaysia

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on बुधवार, अप्रील 7, 2010

Today’s match is a semifinal between Nepal and Malaysia at the same ground where Nepal played yesterday.

Nepal is gone through to semifinal with a very good record of winning all round robin matches impressively where as Malaysia is also impressive in their matches, beat UAE with in 27.1 overs and Bhutan in only 5.2 overs and narrowly lost to mighty Afghanistan by only one run and they are the favorite to win all the moment of that match except final 2, 3 overs.

Nepal has shown all their talents to beat all the teams comprehensively, first they beat defending champion by large 118 runs after making 236 runs on the board, then beat Oman, Singapore and Kuwait by 6, 7 , 8 wickets respectively. They are not really tested for their cool in those match which might cost in semifinal but I am very confident on them to continue their dream to the final

lets see what happen their… check www.nepalkuwait.com for live updates…

Updates:-

Wow finally Nepal manage to restrick them for 263 runs by taking all their wickets in 49.3 overs.

what a tense last 10 overs and so. weldone Malaysian, you gave us a real of cricket

Nepal vs Kuwait

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on मंगलवार, अप्रील 6, 2010

Being already qualified to the semifinal, this is the last round robin match for Nepal where is playing against host Kuwait  today at hubara.

Nepal won all three matches and secured a spot in the semifinal with 6 point and Kuwait is already out of the tournament with 1 win and 2 losses of their group matches. If Nepal wins this match then Nepal enter the semifinal as group winner and if loose then net run rate comes to play to decide the group leader.

Match start at GMT 6.00 am and earlier ACC were proposed to give live ball by ball commentary but later on they changed it to Malaysia vs UAE match after pull out Bahrain team.

So, only source we have to know about match is www.nepalkuwait.com. We heartly thankful to them for their effort to bring updates from the ground.

we won the match by 8 wickets… congratulation to all of us…

weldone boys… we proud of u

Sanjam got the Man of the Match award for his 4 wickets. congrats to him and whole Nepali team…

check it http://www.asiancricket.org/0406_maluae2.htm to look at 0ther match from where our opponent will be fixed, if UAE wins then our opponent will be Afghanista and if UAE loss within 28.2 overs then opponent will be Malaysia or if UAE loss in more than 28.2 overs then we have to play against UAE in semifinal on april 7 ( tomorrow) at this very ground.

(Update GMT 12.22 pm:  Malaysia won the match by 2 wickets in 27.1 overs that means they go through to semifinal to face Nepal. It has been good run by Malaysia till now. They closely lost to Afghanistan by a single run, beat Bhutan by all 10 wickets after chasing 68 runs only in 5.2 overs and today they beat UAE by 2 wickets chasing 152 in 27.1 overs.)

Nepal through to the Semi-Final

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on आइतवार, अप्रील 4, 2010

Nepal got a place in the semifinal without playing its last match against Kuwait on april 6, tuesday after today’s match where Oman beat Kuwait by 5 wickets.

Congratulation to them for going through but the major match is coming ahead that Nepal could get mighty Afghanistan ” an ODI playing nation” in the semifinal and that match will be the real test for Nepal.

We were gone there without our VC gyanendra and Afghanistan is also without the service of their VC Mohammad Nabi, so it could be major plus point to Nepal as Mohammad Nabi  had played major role in our no. of defeats against Afghanistan.

(Update: Gyanendra got the visa and was scheduled to fly monday to Kuwait to play remaining matches that means Mohammad Nabi also might got the visa, then the semifinal will be full strength side vs full strength side. nothing to ask more than it to beat full strength side).

Now, the equation is gone in the  favor of Nepal with 6 points from 3 matches and one match remaining to play, Oman got 4 points from it’s 3 matches, Hongkong also has 4 points from 3 matches and kuwait has only 2 points from 3 matches, Singapore is already gone out of the tournament after loosing all their previous matches.

On Tuesday, Nepal will play its last league match against Kuwait, has no effect on points whatever the result outcome as Kuwait already being out of the tournament and in the same day Hongkong and Oman will play eachother, from that match the winner will go through to semifinal as 2nd semifinalist from the group A. But Winner and runner up of the group will be decided only after tuesday’s matches, no other two teams could go beyond Nepal’s 6 point to stop to go through.

In the other group, the equation is going to be more interesting after Malaysia thrashed Bhutan by 10 wickets in only 5.2 overs, where they crossed the target of 69 runs. Now, they have got 2 point from 2 matches and if they manage to win against UAE, they could go top against Afghanistan with 4 points in the basis of net run rate. Till now, they has +2.49 and Afghanistan has 4 points and net run rate + 2.6 after playing all their league matches.
