Manamohan Memorial Inter Province U-16 National Cricket Tournament has been scheduled for May 1-7 at the TU Stadium in Kirtipur.

All seven Provinces will take part in the tournament organised by the Manamohan Memorial Cricket Centre.

The teams will be divided into two groups of three and four teams. Top two teams from each group will make to the semi-finals, informed MMCC President Thakur Gaire.

According to Gaire, the 30-over tournament was organised with a view to give exposure to young talents. “Nepal has earned international reputation from the game and the tournament could play a role of catalyst by providing exposure and platform to young and talented cricketers,” said Gaire.

The players’ selection for the provincial teams will be based on the recently concluded U-16 Cricket League organised by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Province 3 had claimed the title on April 9.
