Kathmandu – National Cricket Team Coach – Pubudu Dassanayake is planning to return to Nepal after the acceptance of his one-year contract.
Pubuda flew back to Canada in June after the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) failed to renew his contract which expired on June 30. But a Cabinet meeting held in Singhadurbar on July 18 extended his contract for one year.
“I have got the official letter from the Youth and Sports ministry. I am ready to return,” Dassanayake told to Himalayan times (Newspaper).
In September 2011, Dassanayake was hired as a national team Coach for $5,000 per month. After the team succeeded to reach ICC T20 World Cup, CAN then appraised his salary to $8,000 in March.
