ICC suspends the Cricket Association of Nepal

The Cricket Association of Nepal has been suspended by the International Cricket Council due to a ‘vacuum of cricket leadership’ in the country and also in view of government interference in the board. The ICC took the decision after the 2nd meeting of the year at ICC headquarter in Dubai.

According to ICC, the membership of CAN will remain suspended until it becomes free of government interference and is properly structured to begin exploiting the tremendous cricket talent and opportunities that exist in Nepal. However, the ICC decided that Nepal cricket teams would continue to feature in ICC events.

Earlier In December, Nepal’s National Sports Council (NSC) had formed an ad-hoc committee to run the CAN. This happened soon after Chatur Bahadur Chand was elected the CAN’s president in controversial annual general meeting, which was not attended by its president Tanka Angbuhang, without the NSC’s permission. The Chand-led CAN faction then filed a court case, which is still pending, challenging the NSC’s decision.


So now let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Which country cricket association has been suspended by the International Cricket Council recently ?
2. Expand the term ICC, CAN and NSC ?
3. Where is the headquarter of ICC ?
