The bilateral T20 international series between Nepal and Qatar has been postponed citing the new health protocol implemented by the Qatari government regarding the COVID-19.
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has issued a statement on Monday about the postponement of the Qatar series.
“The bilateral T20 series between Nepal and Qatar starting from February 9 to 12 in Qatar has been postponed,” the statement said.
Qatar Cricket Association invited the Nepal team to take part in the three-match T20 series to celebrate Qatar National Sports day.
“Qatar had tightened its grip on Covid’s case since yesterday and was unable to hold the series on time due to government regulations,” Ashok Nath Pyakurel, CAN secretary said to cricnepal.com.
Earlier, CAN had called 18 players for closed training for the preparation of the Qatar series.
