Nepal T20 league, which was postponed earlier due to directives of the Ministry of Home Affairs, will now start on December 12 after receiving approval from ICC. The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) shared the news via social media posts.
The final of the inaugural season will be played on the eve of New year’s day (31 Dec). Earlier the tournament was scheduled from September 24 to October 22.
