KATHMANDU, SEP 01 – The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) on Sunday drafted a Terms of Reference (ToR) to Youth and Sports Ministry (MoYS) who is expected to clear out the working path for the national team coach Pubudu Dassanayake .
Dassanayake, who returned here from Canada after three months on Thursday, is yet to take an proper authority over the team from the cricket governing body after government decided to hand him a one-year contract extension.
The MoYS had earlier opted to keep CAN in the dark on Dassanayake’s contract that created confusion over the coach’s role with the cricket governing body saying it was unaware about the re-hiring.
The confusion finally appeared to have ended with both the MoYS and CAN sitting together to discuss on the issue the day Dassanayake arrived here.
In response to a directive from the ministry, CAN has sent a ToR to ease the process of giving Dassanayake’s extension the final shape.
Though the MoYS and CAN are yet to discuss over the ToR, ministry Under-secretary Ram Bahadur Hamal said Dassanayake’s recruitment will be finalised on Monday. “We will complete the final official agreeement with Dassanayake tommorow (Monday) and send a letter to the CAN through the National Sports Council to work with the coach,” said Hamal.
The eight-point ToR includes the guidelines for Dassanayake within which he needs to work as a government employee. According to CAN acting general secretary Uttam Karmacharya, the ToR stresses that Dassanayake need to be loyal with the cricket governing body, involve himself in various regions of the country as required and also look after national, Under-19 men’s team along with other squads.
The ToR also includes a clause of termination of the coach if found a valid reason to oust him. Likewise, another point states that Dassanayake can come up with plans and programmes that relates to the development of Nepali cricket.
Karmarcharya said CAN will sit for another round of meeting with Dassanayake and MoYS. “We were asked to finalise the ToR as soon as possible. We need to discuss further to make everything pretty clear,” said Karmacharya.
