PROMOTE CRICKET

  • Voice Of The People

Oct 16, 2018-

Nepal has proved itself to be a regional superpower in the ongoing ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier Asia: Eastern Region by playing superb cricket (‘Nepal run riot over China’, TKP Page 11, Oct 11). If they continue to play as ruthlessly as in this series, international laurels are a foregone conclusion. Cricket is one sport that Nepal could find success in. Nepal may have difficulty in finding equal success in other ‘violent’ games like boxing, MMA, martial arts, athletics or even soccer all of which demand unlimited stamina and killer instinct which Nepalese bodies lack. Also, cricketing success may help in with our two million tourist dreams in 2020. Therefore, the government must promote cricket not just as a game but also as a vehicle of tourism promotion. It would be good to establish an integrated cricketing village headquarter far from cities like Kathmandu or Pokhara to insulate players from distractions.
