PM in cricket ground to encourage players

Kathmandu, April 18, 2016: Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli on Monday visited Tribhuvan University Cricket Stadium in Kirtipur to encourage Nepali cricket team players.

Likewise, nearly 17,000 audiences have already reached the ground while many others are seen thronging there. The audiences are chanting phrase ‘Nepal Nepal’ with national flag on hand.

The Nepali team has witnessed slight change today. Sagar Pun is in team in place of Raju Rijal and Binod Bhandari is given the responsibility of wicket keeper.

Today’s Nepali team comprises Paras Khadka, Gyanendra Malla, Sharad Bheswakar, Shakti Gauchan, Basanta Regmi, Sompal Kami, Binod Bhandari, Rajesh Pulami Magar, Sagar Pun, Naresh Budhaer and Sandeep Lamichhane.

Earlier Nepal had made a superb start while defeating Namibia by 5 wickets in the first match of third round under the championship on last Saturday.

With this win Nepal’s dream to participate in the World Cup Cricket Selection to be held in Bangladesh in 2018 is alive.
