National cricketers to join training in Nov end after 8-month gap

Kathmandu, November 6

Training sessions for the Nepal national cricket team that have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic are scheduled to resume after eight months.

The training would take place from the fourth week of November.

This happens after the National Sports Council gave permission to the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN). CAN was preparing to resume training sessions right after the Chhath festival, says CAN President Chatur Bahadur Chand.

Following this, the association has directed more than 24 players, who are currently in various districts, to prepare for the training.

The technical committee would decide the participation of players in the sessions.

Swab samples of all players would be tested for coronavirus infection before the training, he says, adding during the sessions, players and coaches would stay at hotels or guest houses if need be.

CAN’s plan to resume training sessions from August 17 had been halted due to the infection risks.
