Kathmandu – National Cricket Team Coach – Pubudu Dassanayake is planning to return to Nepal after the acceptance of his one year contract.
Pubuda flew back to Canada in June after the Cricket association of Nepal (CAN) failed to renew his contract which was expired on June 30. But a Cabinet meeting held in Singhadurbar on July 18 extended his contract for one year.
“I have got the official letter from the Youth and Sports ministry. I am ready to return,” Dassanayake told to Himalayan times (Newspaper).
In September 2011, Dassanayake was hired as a national team Coach for $5,000 per month. After the team succeeded to reach ICC T20 World Cup, CAN then appraised his salary to $8,000 in March.
