Kathmandu – Construction of International Cricket Ground in Kohalpur, Banke has been delayed due to Government and political issues.
“Nepal Government had already invested approximately of 25 Lakhs for the ground”, Binod Mainali, Regional Cricket President mentioned. Currently, there is no improvement in the maintenance and development of the ground and the ground is still occupied by homeless dwellers. Also, the land is being used as rangelands for grazing livestock.
The regional cricket officials already registered their complaints to the local governing authorities, no major step taken from the concerned till date.
The main governing body of cricket in Nepal, Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) is investing in construction of International cricket grounds in major part of the country. Due to the lack of support from government and local state bodies, it seems a long wait for the emerging cricketers to see cricket development in the country.
