Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground is a cricket ground in Kirtipur (just outside Kathmandu), Nepal. The first recorded match held on the ground came in 1998 when Bangladesh played Papua New Guinea in the 1998 ACC Trophy. Nepal took part in the inaugural Intercontinental Cup, with the matches in the competition having first-class status.

The ground held its first first-class match when Nepal hosted Malaysia. Another two first-class match were held there during the 2005 Intercontinental Cup when Nepal hosted Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates. These remain the only first-class matches to be played at the ground, as well as the only first-class matches to be held anywhere in Nepal.
