Kathmandu, May 31
The International Cricket Council has appointed Umesh Patwal as the head coach of Nepal’s cricket team.
Patwal served as a batting consultant during Nepal’s ODI and T20 series in the UAE last year.
He has also involved with the Afghanistan national team during the World T20 in 2014, 2014 Asia Cup and 2015 World Cup. A native of Mumbai, Patwal has also worked with a lot of youngsters.
As Nepal does not have an active cricket board, the ICC has been appointing coaches for Nepal. It appointed Pubudu Dassanayake as a consulting coach in 2016 and Jagat Tamata as a head coach in 2017.
The ICC will pay Patwal $7000 monthly for his services.
Patwal will sign his contract with the ICC on Friday.
