    why is it that we have good bowling and fielding attack but not a decent batting lineup…this is the problem of Nepal whether we look at a Senior Players or Under-19 or any other age groups.
    We cant always rely on our bowling unit. Batsman should come up of great quality. Why can’t we hire a coach who can focus batting??
