ESPNcricinfo staff

Nepal have been recognised for their commitment to women’s cricket with an award for Best Women’s Cricket Initiative in the ICC Development Awards. Nepal will receive US$ 2,000 worth of Kookaburra equipment.

The nomination came after Nepal won the ACC Development Award for the same programme in February. Rebecca Alwaya won the Volunteer of the Year Award for her outstanding contribution to the game in Uganda.

Nepal are set to take part in the inaugural Asian Cricket Council women's cricket tournament, which is being held in Malaysia in July.

Every news story that comes out of Nepal really does seem to be extremely positive - be it youth cricket, women's cricket, or men's cricket. The ACC and the ICC must have noticed, and I hope they have earmarked Nepal as a country with genuine long-term prospects of becoming a Test playing country.
