Nepal and Netherlands are set to compete in a T20 triangular series against MCC to be held on 29th July at the Lord’s. Three matches will be played in the same day with the first match kicking off at 10.00 am and the final beginning at 4.30 pm.
Nepal had already played at the Lords in 2016 which was played to mark 200 year relationship between Nepal and Britain. In the match Nepal overcame MCC by 41 runs.
Head of Cricket, John Stephenson, said: “We are thrilled that both Nepal and the Netherlands will be joining us at Lord’s for what is set to be another uplifting day at the Home of Cricket following Afghanistan’s historic visit last year.
“We expect to be able to field an MCC side with some big names which will certainly make for a competitive day of cricket. We look forward to welcoming supporters of all competing sides to create what we hope will be a great atmosphere at Lord’s.”
Nepal captain, Paras Khadka, said: “It gives me immense pleasure that Nepal will play at the Home of the Cricket again this year with MCC and the Netherlands. Playing at Lord’s is always special and we are really looking forward to it.
“I urge all cricket lovers, and especially the British Nepalese diaspora, to come and support the event and the Nepal team.
“I would also like to thank MCC and especially John Stephenson who has been working hard to promote Associate Nations. MCC and Nepal Cricket have been working together and have a wonderful relationship which we hope will continue to grow.”
Netherlands Head Coach, Ryan Campbell, said: “Anytime a cricketer is given the opportunity to play at Lord’s, it is something they should cherish and will think of for the rest of his life.
“For us to be invited to play there against the MCC and Nepal will be a very special occasion and I’m sure all of our players will be doing everything they can to gain selection into that squad.”
