Cricket Association of Nepal

Cricket Association of Nepal is the official governing body of cricket in Nepal, suspended from 2016 to 13 October 2019 due to governmental interference. The ICC welcomed the elections of the board held in September 2019 and formally reinstated the board on a conditional basis on 14 October, its headquarters is in Nepal. Cricket Association of Nepal is Nepal's representative at the International Cricket Council and remains an associate member, having been a member since 1988, it is a member of the Asian Cricket Council. The board was dissolved by the government of Nepal in November 2014 on the grounds of incompetence and a three-member ad hoc committee was established with a new president designated by the government itself. In April 2016, CAN was suspended by the ICC, on the grounds of government interference in its operations; the suspension did not affect the ability of Nepal's national teams to participate in ICC tournaments. In October 2019, the ICC lifted its suspension on the Cricket Association of Nepal.

Nepal's position at the top of the ACC rankings rests on its consistent performance at all levels of competition. Wins in U-19 cricket World Cups against Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa have been based on disciplined, error-free cricket. Sri Lanka's batsman Roy Dias, who took over as coach in 2001, was the architect of Nepal's triumphs and he molded a nation high on enthusiasm and short of experience into a competitive force. A good example of his ability to maximize the skills of his charges was seen in the performance of the U-15 team in the 2006 ACC Elite Cup.: only two of the Nepal squad had played any competitive cricket before reaching Malaysia to play the event, two weeks they had won it. A regime change at the Cricket Association of Nepal has led to the adoption of a more professional approach to development. Greater sponsorship and more focused domestic competitions have been the result. Work has started on a national Academy, felt to be vital given the extremes of Nepal's weather for indoor practice, which will be funded by the ACC.

Nepal plays most of its international matches at the Tribhuwan University International Cricket Ground in the outskirts of Kathmandu. Other grounds include Engineering College Ground in Pulchowk. A host of other grounds are used for domestic tournaments including Tudikhel, Army School Ground and Lab School Ground. Various cricket academies have surfaced since 2010, like Sangrila Cricket Academy, Dhangadi Cricket Academy, Jhapa Cricket Academy; the National Cricket Academy started functioning in late 2011. CAN has funded two upcoming national cricket academies in Mulpani and Pokhara. Former coach Pubudu Dassanayake added the batting strength which had long been the Achilles' heel for Nepalese cricket. Under Dassanayake, Nepal has won World Cricket League divisions 4 and 3. Nepal participated in the 2014 ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh on March 2014, where they produced some good performances, narrowly missing out on the next round on net run rate; as a result, they were awarded T20 International status by the ICC along with the Netherlands.

Jay Kumar Nath Shah One of the longest serving cricket association president in the world. He was forced out for failure to improve the game in country. Binay Raj Pandey A long serving cricket administrator with business background, he was forced out by the Maoist government showing his failure to hold an election, a requirement of International Cricket Committee. Tanka Angbuhaang He was politically appointed by the Maoist government of Nepal, he has no sports administration background. During his reign he appointed new coach, made bilateral ties with minor cricket teams in India. TB Shah Binay Raj Panday He was appointed after the previous working committee formed under Tanka Angabuhang was dissolved by the Government. Chatur Bahadur Chand Between 2014 and 2016, Bhawana Ghimire was CEO of the Cricket Association of Nepal. Despite unprecedented success on the field, including victories over Hong Kong and Afghanistan at the 2014 ICC World Twenty20, Nepal went through some turmoil off the field in 2014 with a boycott of the national one-day tournament by the national players with the captain Paras Khadka slamming the Cricket Association of Nepal for their treatment of national players.

The board came under an investigation by the Commission for Investigation into Abuse of Authority. CIAA filed a case against 18 CAN members including the President Tanka Aangabuhang, after finding them guilty of misusing around Rs. 14.31 million, to be used for developing the game in the country instead. This resulted in several CAN members stepping down from their posts on moral grounds. In May, members of CAN filed a no-confidence motion against president Tanka Angbuhang, after the organization of the Nepal Premier League was outsourced to a private sports management firm. In March, the CAN had said Nepal coach Pubudu Dassanayake would get a year's extension to his contract. However, he was only given a three-month extension, which ran out June; the change in terms, CAN secretary Ashok Nath Pyakuryal said, was due to the board being under investigation. The coach left the country on 4 June due to unresolved contractual issues, but the Government of Nepal handed Dassanayake a year's extension.

Dassanayake returned to Nepal on 29 August after being invited by the government and was reappointed coach of Nepal's senior and Under-19 cricket teams. After all these controversies in the year 2014, the Nepal Government dissolved the Angbuhang led CAN committee on 6 Novemb

Bush; the book spent six weeks at #1 on the hardcover non-fiction section of the New York Times Best Seller list. In August 2010, an updated paperback edition with three new chapters was published. Steve Almond of Salon Magazine gave the book an unfavorable review, describing it as a "transparently mercenary clip job patched together via large doses of Red Bull and Google."Michael Gaynor of Renew America wrote, "The Far Left finds Ms. Malkin far too formidable and thus reflexively resorts to baseless personal attacks against her because they can't refute her on the facts and don't want people paying attention to her."
