Kathmandu, May 9
Nepal’s national cricket team will play its penultimate series in the World Cricket League against Hong Kong on October 13 and 15, the International Cricket Council says.
Hong Kong are third in the standings on 11 points from 10 matches after losing twice to Netherlands at home in February. Nepal are sixth with eight points. The top four teams advance to the 2019 ICC World Cup qualifier while the bottom four are relegated to Division Two.
According to reports, Hong Kong players will soon embark on a rigorous five-month training programme.
Head coach Simon Cook told South China Morning Post that he is under no illusions about the task at hand as Hong Kong prepare for their ICC World Cricket League Championship (WCL) clashes against Nepal in October and Papua New Guinea next year.
Nepal will take on the UAE in the next calendar year.
