Kathmandu, August 29
Nepali cricketers have begun preparations for the South Asian Games to be held in Kathmandu and Pokhara in December.
Nepal is hosting the 13th edition of the regional event from December 1 to 12.
Whereas the South Asian Olympic Committee is preparing yet to decide whether Nepal will send its senior team or U-23 team, the Nepali players have been called to the closed camp. However, the Nepal Olympic Committee has proposed that test nations send U-23 teams and others the national ones. A meeting to be held in the first week of September will make the decision.
Nepal cricket captain Paras Khadka says the National Sports Council has directed the concerned to coach the senior team. Therefore, most members of the senior team have been called to the closed camp.
“If there comes a new decision, the new team will be announced accordingly,” Khadka says.
