Same team selected for upcoming ACC Elite Trophy

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on शुक्रवार, मार्च 26, 2010

Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has selected same 14-member squad, which played in the WCL div. 5 in kathmandu, for the ACC Trophy Elite Cup scheduled for Kuwait from March 31 to April 9.

The CAN has named Paras Khadka the Captain and Gyanendra Malla his deputy for the tournament and others in squad include Binod Das, Shakta Gauchan, Mahboob Alam, Basanta Regmi, Dipendra Chaudhari, Sharad Vesawkar, Mahesh Chhetri, Anil Kumar Mandal, Rahul Kumar BK, Sanjam Regmi, Amrit Bhattarai and Binod Bhandari.

Meanwhile Subash Khakurel, Pradeep Airee and Naresh Budhayer were named as reserves, Prithu Baskota left the camp because of his exam and Avay Rana and Dhirendra Bahadur Chand could not able to join the closed camp training at the Tribhuvan University Stadium because of. CAN also named Roy Luke Dais the team coach, Suresh Dutta Pandey the assistant coach and Binod Kumar Mainali the manager.

Nepal are drawn in Group A with the defending champions Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuwait and Oman in the eighth edition of the tournament. Group B includes the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Afghanistan, Malaysia, Bahrain and Bhutan.

I don’t understand why CAN selected same team from the last tournament after knowing the fact of batting weaknesses. Why don’t they try to solve it trough putting some more batsmen in the side? if they want to put same squad for the tournament then why are they making dramas of selection. If yes, then why didn’t they provide them more practice matches rather than close camps. When will CAN learn from their past? Don’t they visit at websites, where they could know what their fans wants from them? Why don’t they want to listen voice from the fans?

Dilemma of Nepali cricket

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on मंगलवार, मार्च 2, 2010

EDITORIAL- REPUBLICA

Nepal is promoted to World Cricket League (WCL) Division 4 when it reached the final of Division 5 held in Kathmandu last week. What added cherry on top of the cake was Nepal’s victory against the US in the final. The victory gave the country its first major cricket trophy since its entry into international cricket in 1996. Nepal will next compete in WCL Division 4 in Italy in August. If we make it to the finals there and in Division 3 and finish within the top four of Division 2 in 2011, Nepal will be able to compete in the 12-nation World Cup qualifiers in 2013 from which six top teams will get to play in the 2015 World Cup along with the other 10 Test playing nations.

However, accomplishing such a feat is no mean task. The road ahead is fraught with challenges and if we do not do our homework properly, we might not even be able to emerge as one of the top two teams in Division 4, leave alone the dreams of qualifying for the 2015 World Cup. It is not the dearth of players or talent that is preventing us from taking big strides forward. If history is any indicator, it is the lack of proper planning or the implementation of chalked out plans that is halting the march forward of Nepali cricket. Since 1996, the cricketing world has been showering praises on us labeling us the next big cricketing nation but sadly we haven’t been able to make much progress. The problem is that we embraced the accolades but failed to do much to live up to it.

True, we lack infrastructure, something that cannot be developed overnight. But, unfortunately, we have also lagged behind in doing what could have been achieved fairly easily. It is a matter of shame for the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) that despite promises and sponsorship deals, our domestic structure is still extremely weak. Our national players play more international cricket than domestic cricket. We need more domestic events in all forms: Twenty20, one-dayers and multi-dayers.

Importantly, players need to be paid, at least a nominal amount. And this is not a big issue because CAN announced an individual prize of Rs 50,000 to each member of the team for winning Division 5. And a little addition in that amount is enough to pay the national players Rs 5,000 a month. Regular income will take a major burden off the players’ head and help them play better. Dreams come true when it is nurtured and CAN, though constituted of volunteer members, either needs to work harder to take cricket in the right direction or give others – who may be willing – that opportunity.

(well said Republica, hats off for you)
