Kathmandu – The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday announced that the upcoming Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 series involving Nepal, Scotland, and Namibia due to take place in Spain next month has been postponed to July 2022 because of COVID-19.
Last week, the Nepal Cricket team announced their 20-men preliminary squad for the closed-camp and kicked off their preparation this week.
WCL2 was originally scheduled on July last year and got postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and moved to Spain this year.
International Cricket Council today confirmed that the worsening situation in Namibia, where rising COVID-19 cases have impacted training preparations and the tightening of restrictions has reduced travel options.
This series is two steps away from the Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 and has been postponed to July 2022, after exploring options to also stage the event in Spain this summer which became infeasible.
“The sixth series of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 between Nepal, Scotland, and Namibia is now postponed to July 2022. We tried our best to play the series, but the tightening of restrictions in Namibia left us with no alternative but to postpone the event,” ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said in the statement released by ICC today.
