KATHMANDU, Nov 13: The Nepali national women's team, which went to play friendly cricket in Bangladesh, is returning to Nepal by bus as they were not able to board a plane in Dhaka.

After failing to return to Nepal on Thursday from the scheduled Himalayan Airlines flight, they are returning to Nepal by bus via India on Friday.

According to President of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) Chatur Bahadur Chand, the issue of not being allowed to board the plane after arriving at Dhaka airport to return home due to lack of COVID-19 test will be investigated.

President Chand said that such a situation was created after the aviation officials demanded a PCR report within 72 hours when the local organizers did not clearly state the arrangements there.

He also said the incident was a "lesson" for them and that they would investigate how such a mistake was made.
