A brief history of Nepali Cricket

Nepal’s national cricket team played their first-ever international match against Bangladesh in the ACC Trophy, which Nepal lost in the 39.2 overs after the game. Bangladesh made 213/9 over in 50 over, handing Nepal a stiff 214 target to achieve in its first ever foreign victory, pursuing Nepal to 90/5 at 39,2 because Bangladesh had a comfortable win at the highest score rate Nepal had to score 168 in this period. Nepal ended fourth in six teams versus Brunei and Japan. Earlier joy and enthusiasm arrived in the mountain nation when the International Cricket Council declared Nepal, an affiliate member.

“Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard.” It’s 18 years since Nepal’s first international match and these years have taught cricketing community what it can achieve. Mehboob Alam was the first bowler ever to take 10 wickets in a small cricket. Shakti Gauchan has also become the most economical bowler in the history of cricket giving in to Pepsi World Cricket League Division 4, just 2 runs of 10 runs, including 8 maiden and 3 bowls on his name against Malaysia. Nepal has bowled out Myanmar in the 2006 ACC Trophy for just 10 off 10.1 and has chased the target of 11 in only 0.2 overs. The ranking of 10 was the lowest in the international cricket level of men.

Nepal set two bowling records for the opponent for a minimum number of runs and chase the target in minimum overs, all in the same match. Nepal has also performed exceptionally well at the age level. It has qualified 6 times since 2000 for the U19 world cup, while the second most effective team in non-test play was Ireland 7 times, with the title plate champions in 2006. Since having their debut in 2007, national women cricket teams have made a global announcement.

Following the arrival in 2011 of former Srilankan wicket-keeper Pubudu Dasanayake, who previously ran Canada on the world stage, hopes have peaked. Nepal’s senior men’s team has been at its peak in recent years. After beating their arch-rival HongKong by 5 wickets, the Nepal cricket team has recognized the dream that almost 2.5 million people are making their world premiere.

While its existence is comparatively limited, there are already remarkable accomplishments in this region. One of the brilliant moments is the national cricket team that won and won the ACC Fast Track Countries Tournament trophy in 2006. They were the leading participants in the 2002 ACC Trophy.

Nepal was excellent under coach Roy Dias when he defeated the US and won WCL Division Five’s title in 2010. Another coach, Pubudu Dassanayake, earned Nepalese cricket fans respect and raised Nepal from Division IV to Division II. Most of all when they qualified for the ICC Tournament as the ICC World T20 2014. Then Nepal was granted the status of one day international (ODI) for the first time in 2018.
