Nepal’s national cricket team have left for the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday. The team will play one three match one day series and another three match T20 series against the hosts.

Before taking the flight, the team’s captain Paras Khadka told journalists that his team would win both the series.

“In results of pat few years, we are neck and neck with the UAE. We have a good opportunity to win the games,” Khadka said, “We should be strong in all aspects of the game, batting, bowling, and fielding.”

He said the series would be significant for the country as they would affect the one day international ranking.

The one day matches have been scheduled for January 25, 26 and 28. Likewise, T20 matches will be held on January 31, February 1 and February 3.

Earlier, National Sports Council Member Secretary Keshav Kumar Bista had seen the team off amidst a special function in the capital.
