The disappointment for Nepal cricketers and fans continue as International Cricket Council has told the suspended CAN to withdraw from holding it’s forthcoming elections.
Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) had announced that the central elections would be held by December 24 after its Special General Meeting on August 23 passed the new constitution with amendments and got approval from the National Sports Council (NSC). ICC, however, said the amendments were not in line with the agreement made with world cricket’s governing body and ICC Advisory Group in the previous discussion between the three parties.
In a letter written to CAN General Secretary Ashok Nath Pyakuryal by ICC and obtained by the Post, it read: “The Board remains concerned that the CAN constitution, as amended and proposed by the Nepal Advisory Group—upon which CAN was represented—was not passed at the Special General Meeting on 22-23 August (2017).”
“Based on the information that you have provided us (about new amendments), the Constitution that was passed at the aforementioned SGM appears to contain 27 amendments to the Constitution agreed by the Advisory Group,” said the letter that further added ICC would seek legal advise and assess the amendments before declaring its position.
This comes as a big roadblock for CAN one more time as it remains to be seen if ICC eventually takes the same approach it took towards USA Cricket by terminating the board and form a new board based on their criteria.
