Indian captain in town, says Nepal can do better


KATHMANDU: Indian cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni reached Kathmandu on Saturday morning becoming the first current skipper of a ICC full member nation to visit Nepal so far.

Speaking to press personals at the TIA, Dhoni said that the Nepalese team should concentrate and have perseveration to boost up their performance.

He stressed on the need to build infrastructures in the nation to promote the game and also urged the players to take their studies in parallel to the game.

The 2011 World Cup winning skipper is slated to spend some time with the Nepali U-19 team camp at the Tribhuvan University Stadium in Kirtipur, where he will also interact with officials from the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) and national team members.

The U-19 team is preparing for the ACC U-19 Asia Cup to be held in Malaysia from June 23 to July 2.

After spending about two hours at the TU Stadium, Dhoni will join a joint reception from the Indian Embassy and CAN at the Hotel Yak & Yeti. According to the cricket governing body, Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai and other prominent personalities are expected to join the reception.

On Tuesday morning he is slated to visit Pashupatinath temple before returning home in the afternoon.

Before Dhoni, India’s 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev had visited Nepal during the Tempo Legend Cup in 1999 followed by Sunil Gavaskar in 2004.
