The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has extended its support to the cricket community of Nepal, who have been left traumatized by a major earthquake that has claimed more than 5000 lives.
In a meeting in New Delhi on May 1, the board decided to offer the National Cricket Academy (NCA) facilities and technical expertise to Nepal cricketers till the country recovers from the natural calamity.
“BCCI stands with Nepal cricket in this hour of crisis,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur told ESPNcricinfo. “We have offered our NCA facilities to Nepal cricket for coaching and training of their cricketers preparing for world events. Nepal has done well in cricket recently and we would like to support our neighbouring nations trying who are trying to emerge as cricket-playing nations.”
Indeed, the BCCI has done a fantastic job in providing the NCA facilities to Nepal’s national team as now they can prepare well for their forthcoming international fixtures and especially the qualifiers of the ICC World T20 2016, to be played in July in Ireland and Scotland.
The earthquake had left Nepal’s preparations for the tournament in jeopardy. However, the BCCI’s helping hand would provide Nepal cricketers the boost to qualify for their second successive World T20 tournament.
