Kathmandu, July 19
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided not to lift Cricket Association of Nepal’s suspension.
The Thursday’s annual conference meeting of the ICC held in London decided not to lift the ban put on Nepal’s cricketing body.
The ICC on April 25, 2016 had suspended CAN, citing increasing government interference in it. The frequent efforts to get the suspension removed had turned unsuccessful.
Despite the ICC action, Nepal are playing international cricket matches under the ICC surveillance.
Meanwhile, the ICC Board meeting has suspended the Zimbabwe Cricket Board with immediate effect for increasing political inference in it.
