  • I had a lot of hope from this team, but after i saw the performance of nepali u19 team live in the ESPN, i was shocked. Nepal’s every sector is going down. I was thinking only the batting is down, but every aspect is going down, especially fielding and pace bowler are also needed. The batting is totally disaster, from this tournament, i think subash khakurel is only the batsman that can do something and pradip airee may be. CAN and coaches should do something to protect nepali cricket from going downward.

    • i am with you brother … i have following this tournament which was a big disappointment . seems like Subash Khakurel was the only playing who was batting
