The Central Working Committee meeting of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) held on October 7 and 8 has decided to call for applications for the vacant post of head coach of the national cricket team within 15 days.
Earlier in August this year, Dav Whatmore stepped down as head coach of Nepal’s national team after a nine-month tenure.
The meeting held in Kathmandu has given the responsibility of the acting secretary role to the central member Prashant Bikram Malla. Former CAN secretary Ashok Nath Pyakurel and vice-chairman Rajubabu Shrestha announced their resignations last month.
CAN have also recognized Kalikot, Salyan, Dailekh, and Western Rukum of Karnali Province as there should be at least four districts under the state as per its constitution.
Likewise, CAN has decided to hold its annual general meeting on December 13.
The CAN has also decided to cancel its agreement with the Indian company Seven Three Sports, which has agreed to host the Nepal T20 League. The reason for the cancellation was mainly due to the government, not giving permission and the company not being able to complete the pre-approval agreement.
It has been decided to conduct closed training of the Nepali women’s team from October 20 for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Asian qualifiers to be held in the UAE in November.
