Cricket is one of the most popular sports in Nepal after football and Nepalese people follow this sport very crazily, especially the young people. Nepal National Cricket Team is playing cricket since 1996 as an associate member of the ICC. (International Cricket Council). During this period Nepal cricket achieved ODI status and played the ICC T20 World cup. And nowadays Nepal is playing the ICC World division 2 to save their ODI status and they are in the last two.
The cricketing body of Nepal is CAN (The Cricket Association of Nepal) and it was banned for a long time by ICC because of its intransparent work. And recently ICC gave them the full power of CAN to operate the cricket activities in Nepal. Otherwise, ICC used to be the back support and supervision of how CAN will work. Recently there was misunderstood between CAN and players about the grading system.
And because of that issue the present captain Mr. Gyanendra Mall was sacked by CAN. And they appointed Mr. Sandeep Lamichhane as the new caption of the Nepal National Cricket Team. Since then Nepal played two international series and they performed on average. And after the Nepal cricket team tour to Scotland and an unforgettable defeat; the head coach Pududu Dassabayake regained the role as the head coach of the Nepal National Cricket Team.
