The Cricket Association of Blind (Cab) Nepal on Wednesday announced a 14-member squad for the first Blind Twenty20 Asian Cup to be held in Kochi, India on January 17-24.

The Asia Cup will be participated in by India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The tournament was originally scheduled to begin two years ago in Pakistan but was pushed back due to ‘technical reasons’. All round-robin league games will be played at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kerala. Nepal will leave for the venue on January 14 after a week-long closed camp in Kathmandu on January 4-10. Duwal will also play the role of the team coach, while Cab Nepal President Pawan Ghimire will be the team manager.
