Nepal Cricket team is currently teaming up for their sixth round match of World Cricket League Championship (WCLC). Nepal will take on Hong Kong on 13th and 15th of October. Nepal must win this both games in order to remain in hunt for place in ODI World Cup.
The team was granted five days holiday as Dashain vacation. Before that, Nepal completed their India Tour with 3 wins and a loss in four practise matches. However, National team vice captain Gyanendra Malla chooses practice over dashain vacation. He said he is more focused on Nation rather than the Dashain.
“We are more focused on WCLC match against Hong Kong match rather than Dashain. We have been celebrating the dashain festival in normal way since last 4-5 years. This is so, because most of Nepal’s matches take place during this time.” Malla Said. According to him, for a player the festival is never superior than their country.
