Nowadays Nepali cricket has been in poor state. Either Asia Cup or World Cup cricket, Nepal is failed to qualify despite performing brilliantly in senior level. It’s really sad for Nepali cricket that Nepal fail to qualify even U-19 World Cup Cricket after being part of it 5 times in a row since 1998. Nepal defeated Test Nation like South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, New Zealand and ODI status getter team Zimbabwe, Canada, Ireland, and Bermuda and so on during their age level tournament. Nepal got the name as Dark House, Giant Killer for their performance in International Cricket. But this failure in succession of cricket, one question arises. Who will take the responsibility of this? Coach, Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) or players who will? It Nepal is willing to perform well in further future; it should recognize the problem and apply solution for better future.
Despite performing well in their age and senior level Nepali cricketer fails in key time and upset Nepali fans. When they begin lose and they started their regular slogan like we don't have enough practice? We have no future in cricket and so on. But one point that Nepali player must accept that no one in International cricketer started their career with great facility. In beginning they are in same state where Nepali cricket is. They generate glamour, money and crowd with their great performance in cricket. They spent their sweat and blood to made today's cricket. So Nepali player have to do better than now and attract more people to this. When they get more publicity they will get more facility than now. In Nepal the present condition is not available from begin. The condition made by the players own effort, it’s all because of their success in International arena.
It is Nepal’s fortune to have the cricket coach like Roy Luke Dias. In comparison with other non-test playing nation it’s sure that Roy Dias is best one. All his effort made Nepali cricket in today's condition. In his coaching period Nepal won all age level Asian tournaments and still progressing on it. But people have accused him for not producing lots of cricket in his long period in Nepal. Just a handful cricket he uses to get success. Present time there are very few crickets that can perform best in every level. In his cricketing career he was a pure batsman, but Nepal's major problem is batting. It’s really a serious question what he was doing with the Nepali team? In beginning he was trying to his best to make Nepali team as strong as possible. He arranges some practice matches before tournament with own effort. But now he has stopped all these things and comment over lose is sound like slogan. 'Players need lots of practice’; 'There is no more infrastructures'. Hello, sir this is not present problem. Nepali cricket is same in beginning. Just one major problem is Nepali facilities not increase, as it required. So Dias should accept his own weakness and try to overcome on this. It is the best way to promote Nepali cricket.
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN)
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) is the oldest sports organization of Nepal. One organization to organize at least one league in a year is the main positive part of it. Every success that Nepal gets in cricket is also inspired by CAN. Either women cricket or age level cricket, we must respect CAN's effort on it. But every failure in Nepali cricket that CAN's careless is major. Only one short tournament will not gain positive result every time. CAN always trying to complete formality. Nepal have great future and Nepali cricket are potential they are not a bought cricket they are natural and pure Nepali. CAN even fails to utilize Cricket powerhouse India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, a test nation as well as neighbors of Nepal. Little support from this country can change whole scenario of Nepali cricket. CAN have do develop its infrastructure. Only one international cricket ground will not make Nepali cricket to play World Cup or Asia Cup.
Step should follow
That is sure that Nepali cricket is not going to be dominated. Because this game has generated lots of fans and encourage youths to play cricket. In Nepal, youth are adjusting to play cricket in road, gully and every small places. This means Nepal is not going to stop. If CAN starts to think and act on development of Nepali Cricket, that is sure, in future we are test nation. We can watch our team to play World Cup, because Nepali player have lots of potential, only requirement is that they need to shine. Each and every steps admire by CAN help to brandies Nepali cricket toward success.
