Kathmandu, September 16
The election and special meeting of general members of Cricket Association of Nepal has been delayed by a week after discussions between the International Cricket Council and the National Sports Council. The general assembly will now be held on September 27 and 28.
Previously, an independent committee formed by the international cricket governing body has scheduled the election for September 20 and 21. However, the meeting was put in limbo after NSC Member Secretary Ramesh Silwal called the independent committee member Rasjeshwor Shrestha, asking him to stop the AGM.
According to a source, Silwal had told Shrestha to stop the AGM citing a previous NSC decision stated that any sports committee should issue a notice 21 days before such election. Silwal had also stated that NSC should appoint an election committee to conduct the poll.
But, all problems have been resolved after ICC’s vice-president Imran Khawaja and NSC’s Silwal held talks with one another, the sources say.
The ICC has suspended the membership of CAN since 2016 citing political interferences. It is expected that the suspension will end after the AGM will elect a new committee. The ICC is organising a board meeting on October 13 which is expected to discuss the issue.
