Relaxing a bit, Nepali national cricket team is all set for its next battle with UAE from January 25, 2019.
The upcoming series is going to be the second ODI International series for Nepal and includes three ODIs and three T20 Internationals.
Adding to the team’s confidence, the spinning sensation Sandeep Lamichhane also returned home leaving the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Lamichhane has reportedly returned to Nepal to prepare for the scheduled series.
The spinner landed in Kathmandu on January 21, 2019, almost after a one-month period, completing his successful journey with the Big Bash League (BBL) of Australia and Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
In these two international cricket series, Lamichhane played four matches in Australia and six in Bangladesh.
With Lamichhane on board, the national team is scheduled to leave for Abu Dhabi on January 22, 2019 for the Tri-Series.
“We are delighted to welcome Nepal to the UAE for this (ODI) tri-series, and we expect a strong performance from our team under the captaincy of Naveed. We are also very excited to take the match to a wider, international audience through live streaming, and we anticipate this will be exceptionally well received across the region,” says Waleed Bukhatir, Emirates Cricket Board Member and Chief Selector.
As per the schedule, ODI matches are scheduled for January 25, 26 and 28, 2019, while T20 matches will be held during January 31, February 1 and February 3, 2019.
All matches are going to be played at the ICC Academy (ICCA) at Dubai Sports City, starting from 9.30am (UAE time) on January 25, 2019.
