KATHMANDU, June 8: The National Sports Council (NSC) issued a directive to the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) on Friday, emphasizing that the Nepali national team should concentrate entirely on their performance in the ongoing Men's T-20 Cricket World Cup in the USA and the West Indies.

The NSC expressed concern over the participation of World Cup players in various "meet and greet" programs organized by different Nepali communities, which could potentially distract the players from their training and preparation for high-level performance. Saroj Kumar Pokharel, Head of the Sports Development Department at NSC, conveyed these concerns in a letter sent to CAN.

In the letter, the NSC instructed CAN to ensure that the players refrain from attending any events organized by external individuals or organizations and instead focus completely on their game and necessary preparations. The NSC also extended its best wishes to the Nepali cricket team, marking their second appearance in the history of Nepali cricket, for achieving high performance in the ongoing tournament.
