The International Cricket Council (ICC) Advisory Committee meeting to re-admit the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) as a member of ICC concluded in a positive note held in Kathmandu on Monday, February 20, 2017.
The meeting has agreed on the terms of reference for the work and a community consultation process by which members of the Nepalis cricket community will give inputs for the revised constitution, according to the ICC press release.
Nepal Advisory Group, which consists of various stakeholders of cricket in Nepal, held meeting on Sunday and Monday.
The advisory group was formed by the ICC to recommend amendments to the constitution of the CAN and then to hold election after the suspension of Nepali cricket apex body in April, last year.
The ICC had suspended CAN for breach of Article 2.9 of the ICC’s Articles of Association, which prohibits government interference and requires free and fair elections.
The suspension cut off funding for the CAN but Nepal was allowed to continue participating in ICC events.
The ICC delegation will decide on a timetable for the adoption of the revised constitution and elections during the visit here at World Cricket League Championship matches against Kenya on March 11 and 13, 2017, according to the release.
Following this, CAN’s membership of the ICC will be tabled for consideration at the ICC Annual General Meeting in June.
