Kathmandu, September 10
Members of Nepal’s national cricket team have received their outstanding salaries for 2019.
Sources say Cricket Association of Nepal already deposited the players’ salaries in their respective bank accounts after receiving the money from International Cricket Council on September 1.
Both the bodies, however, have not said anything about the payment officially.
CAN had proposed a Rs 10,000 rise in each player’s pay from their previous scale. A source says the ICC approved the proposal and given all the players a rise.
In 2017 and 2018, when CAN’s membership of the ICC was suspended, the international cricket governing body had given an A-grade player Rs 35,000, a B-grader Rs 25,000, and a C-grader Rs 15,000 a month. Now, the amounts have increased to Rs 45,000, Rs 35,000, and Rs 25,000 respectively.
Below is which player is in which grade:
- Grade A: Gyanendra Malla, Paras Khadka, Sharad Vesawkar, Dipendra Singh Airee, Sompal Kami, Sandeep Lamichhane, Karan KC, and Binod Bhandari
- Grade B: Abinash Bohora, Aarif Sheikh, Basanta Regmi, Lalit Narayan Rajbanshi, Rohit Paudel, Pawan Sarraf, Sandeep Jora, and Sushan Bhari
- Grade C: Raju Rijal, Pradeep Airee, Rasid Khan, Ishan Pandey, Kushal Malla, and Kushal Bhurtel
