Mani praises 'impressive' Nepal
Ehsan Mani, the ICC president, and Malcolm Speed, the CEO, both praised Nepal's performance in Under-19 cricket and hoped that the country would translate the success in the senior level as well. Speed said:
The most impressing thing is that the semi-finals and the final of the ACC Under-19 Cup were watched by 15,000 to 20,000 spectators. Nepal's passion for cricket is very impressive and we will be telling these to other associate and affiliate countries as well.
