KATHMANDU — The International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) on Monday, saying that the government has interfered Nepali cricket.

The suspension means Nepal will not receive any fund from the ICC. The national cricket team, however, will be able to participate in international tournaments.

“The suspension means that CAN won’t be qualified for receiving any ICC financing. However, the board, in its absolute discretion and considering that the players should not suffer due to this suspension, decided that the Nepal cricket teams would be able to continue to feature in ICC events,” the ICC said in a media release.

“In light of the ongoing court case involving the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) and the ad hoc committee established by Nepal’s National Sports Council (NSC), which has led to a vacuum of cricket leadership in Nepal, the [ICC] Board has suspended the membership of CAN for breach of Article 2.9 of the ICC’s Articles of Association, which prohibits government interference and requires free and fair elections,” the ICC said.

The world governing body accused the National Sports Council for leading Nepali cricket authority into vacuum and said the suspension would stay “until such time as the CAN becomes free of government interference and is properly structured to begin exploiting the tremendous cricket talent and opportunities that exist in Nepal.”

“ICC management will also now work with the Nepal’s cricket community, and other stakeholders, in order to assist with the development of a sustainable governance and administration structure for cricket in Nepal,” added the release.
