Nepal T20 League, Nepal’s official franchise league organised by the Cricket Association of Nepal is likely to be rescheduled. The inaugural edition of Nepal T20 was scheduled to commence on December 24.

Chatur Bahadur Chand, CAN’s President confirmed today, citing the work permit issues of the foreign players.

Chand is also concerned over Seven3Sports, the strategic and commercial partner of the League as they have not done their homework for the preparation including foreign players’ work permit.

“The labour approval process has been slow and it is unlikely to happen before the current schedule. We are currently discussing the possibility of rescheduling the league in two or three days’ time,” Chand further added.

Chand also confirmed that if the issue is not resolved within a couple of days, the contract with Seven Three Sports will be terminated and there won’t be any event this year.

This is the third time Nepal T20 League has been rescheduled. It was originally scheduled on September 24, however, due to the security concern, it was postponed until December 12.

Again on December 12, the organiser reschedule the league due to Kathmandu Gorkhas, one of the six franchises pulling out, and the date was pushed to December 23.

Six teams, Kathmandu Knights, Lumbini All-Stars, Janakpur Royals, Far-Western United, Pokhara Avengers, and Biratnagar Super Kings, will compete for the maiden title of Nepal T20. The league will be played in a round-robin format, with each team meeting others in the home and away matches; however, all the games will be played at TU Cricket Ground.
