  • Nepali team camp will officially begin on August 1.
  • Whatmore will return to Nepal before the Nepali team prepares for the series in Oman

The four ICC World Cricket League Division 2 series to be played by Nepal have been postponed due to the coronavirus. The final triangular series in Scotland had to be postponed at the last minute. As a result, even after starting the preparations, the Nepali team had to stop in the middle.

Nepal, on the other hand, is planning a series in Oman in September. The US and Oman have already started their preparations. The second week of September's schedule has yet to be released. However, the tournament appears to be on track as the United States and Oman begin preparations.

Similarly, starting in early August, the Nepali cricket team will conduct closed training. Chatur Bahadur Chand, president of the Nepal Cricket Association (NCA) told Neplays that a triangular series will be held in Oman as planned, and the Nepali team will begin training on August 1. He said some players are still training on their own and that the camp will officially begin on August 1.

The players who were previously invited to the camp for the tournament to be held in Spain have been invited. Despite the Nepali team starting the visa process for the series in Spain, it was postponed at the last minute after a player from the Namibian team tested positive to Covid-19.

This time, head coach Davenell Frederick Whatmore will return to Nepal before the Nepali team prepares for the series in Oman. He returned to Sri Lanka for the second time after the Spanish series was postponed.

No League 2 series has been played in over a year and a half due to Covid. The top-ranked team in the ODI World Cup in India in 2023 will play a global selection and be promoted to the Super League's next edition. Similarly, the teams that finish second and third in the standings will compete in World Cup qualifiers.

Nepal has only played four games in which there have been two wins and two losses so far.
