Kathmandu, November 18
The international cricket governing body, International Cricket Council, has extended the ODI status given to Nepal by one year until 2023, informs the Cricket Association of Nepal.
Speaking in the virtual annual general meeting of the association on Wednesday, its president Chatur Bahadur Chand informed the ICC decided to extend the status citing the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on cricket activities in the world.
Nepal had earned the one-day international status in March 2018 for four years by becoming the best team among ICC associate members during the World Cup Qualifiers held in Zimbabwe.
After getting the status for the first time, Nepal have played 10 ODI matches. Among them, they won five and lost five.
