KMC and CAN Bagmati join hands for Cricket Growth

Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) and the Bagmati Provincial Committee of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) have joined hands in a collaborative agreement.

KMC Mayor Balen Shah announced the partnership on Friday, emphasizing the city’s commitment to promote cricket at the grassroots level. As part of the agreement, KMC plans to establish cricket training facilities in selected schools and ward offices, with technical support from CAN Bagmati.

The official agreement was inked by Mayor Shah and Paras Khadka, the esteemed President of the Bagmati Province Committee of CAN and former national team captain, during the signing ceremony held on Friday.

Mayor Shah highlighted a pressing concern, stating, “Currently, there are only 25 Level 1-3 cricket coaches in Bagmati Province, which falls short considering the coach-to-player ratio. To address this issue, we are launching a Cricket Coach Development Program in collaboration with CAN Bagmati. This program will kickstart the ICC Level 0 Cricket Coach Development Program right here in Kathmandu.”

Under this ambitious initiative, a total of 50 coaches will undergo training, subsequently equipping them to mentor and nurture the budding cricket talent within Kathmandu.

This partnership signifies a significant stride towards fostering cricket talent and nurturing the sport at the grassroots level, promising a brighter future for cricket enthusiasts in Kathmandu.
