  • Very good decision. Nepal cricket should focus on two day cricket alot. Only by this they will no the good batsmen and bowlers. Playing T20 every time is not going to benefit cricket Nepal. By T20, talent is recognize only but to develop that talent in the right direction, they need to play two day game. Players will strengthen and determined to play good strokes and placement.
    This tournament should have to schedule every year or alternate year.
