News: Nepal gets $266K sponsorship, starts 2 day domestic cup

This is finally, the great news that people were expecting. The new management has shown what can be achieved in the shortest of times in countries which have the playing number, passion, and support for the national team. The sponsors are also big companies, like Surya Nepal and Standard Chartered Bank.

Kudos to the CAN management, and best of luck to Nepal.

    A few of the bigger Associates could take a leaf out of Nepal’s book in regards the 2-day comp. Good luck to them!

    nepal has shown great potential in cricket in the recent time. the players have proved their character and surprized big guns many times. spacially in the junior level they are already a world class team. remember the last under 19 world cup, when they beat the likes of south africa and newzeland and won the title of plate champianship.
    what the players just need is opportunity to play and the other facilities. The latest move of can will certainly help to boost their quality and produce some new talents. Not it is time for ICC to think about giving Nepal Oneday status. I am sure they will certainly prove themselves.

    ODI status is wishful thinking in terms of Nepal at the momment ……. ICC can however try to incorporate them in some sort of a tour program……..

    This is great news indeed for Nepali cricket…As you said, when public interest is there, it’s just a matter of getting focused in the right direction…About ODI status, I think they first need to undertake a tour of England and defeat county 2nd XIs (similar to what Afghanistan did) before they can even imagine playing ODIs…I assume that for a team to get ODI status, it should be capable of standing upto county first XIs on a consistent basis (excuse Bermuda/Canada from this criterion 🙂 )…Nepal, at the moment aren’t quite there but should get there soon if the current board continues its good start..

    Indeed! it’s a promising start from new CAN (Cricket Association of Nepal). But it is only the beginnng to road to worldcup’11, need to do alot for that. atleast we could say it is good start. we believe, our players have such talents enough to play worldcup though we just lack match practices and belief on cricket to live standard life.

    this the most exciting news to come out of nepal for a while. ive always maintained that the biggest stumbling block for nepali cricket has been domestic political unstability. in a turbulent atmosphere, its always hard for sports organizations to obtain funding.
    now that theres a hope for lasting peace, im sure more corporate houses will feel secure enough to engage in public relations activities, and cricket is a surefire way
    theres always been massive popular support for the game, and im sure that this is just the begining
    what im hoping for in the middle-to-short term nepali cricket is to take a leaf out of namibia’s book and start competing in the indian domestic circuit
    hoping for the rapid development of nepali cricket

    Good to hear about it!!! But i wonder if that $$ will help the players, i heard that the players aren’t paid anything except when there is tour or tournament..CAN should look into the welfare of the Players, nevertheless Nepal is on Country to Watch out for!!! so Talented !!!

    Nepal is one of the few team in associate countries which have only home groomed cricketers,they haven’t any foreign based players like UAE,Malaysia,Hongkong etc have.That’s why the passion for nepalese cricket team is growing arond the country.Now cricket is replacing football as the most popular game in the cricket and that is why the corporate house is sponsoring nepalese cricket because cricket has now become passion of the people.As a result the populariry of cricket has grown dramatically in short period of rime.
    It is lesson for ACC thar if they want to popularize the cricket in the world then they shall encourage rhe team like Nepal and discourage the assembled ream.
