२० ओभरको विश्वकप खेल्न बंगलादेश पुगेको नेपाली क्रिकेट टोलीले आज खेलेको आप्नो दोश्रो अभ्यास खेलमा पनि पराजय भोगेको छ। हिजो आफ्नो पहिलो अभ्यास खेलमा आएरल्याण्डसँग ५ विकेटले हार ब्यहोरेको नेपाल आज पुरानो प्रतिद्वन्दि युएईसँग ६ विकेटले पराजित हुन पुग्यो।

टस हारेर ब्याटिङ गर्न आएको नेपाले आज पनि खराब सुरुवात गर्यो। खराब फर्ममा रहेका सागर पुन १ रन बनाएर आउट भए। २.१ ओभरमा टिमको स्कोर ३ रन हुँदा पहिलो ओपनर गुमाएको नेपालको ईनिङ त्यसपछि ब्याटिङमा आएका उपकप्तान ज्ञानेन्द्रको २ चौकाले उकासिएको थियो। तर उनि धेरैबेर क्रिजमा टिक्न सकेनन्। चौथो ओभरमा युएईका सिल्भाले उनलाई बोल्ड गरेपछि नेपाली टिम दबाबमा आएको थियो। त्यसपछि आएका कप्तान पारश खड्काले सम्हालिएर ब्याटिङ गर्दै नेपाली ईनिङ अघि बढाए।

टिमको स्कोर ५५ रन पुग्दा नेपालले अर्का ओपनर सुवासलाई गुमायो। उनले ३३ बलमा ३ चौकाको मद्दतले २८ रन जोडे। त्यसपछि नेपाली ब्याटिङ धरमरायो। तेश्रो विकेट झरेको ४ बलपछि बिनोद भण्डारीका रुपमा नेपालले अर्को विकेट गुमायो। बिनोद ४ बलमा २ रनमात्र बनाएर आउट भएका थिए। त्यसको लगत्तै अर्को बलमा शरद भेषावकर खाता नै नखोली आउट भएपछि नेपाली ईनिङ धरापमा परेको थियो। शरद पछि क्रिजमा आउका बिनोद र पारशले १८ बलको साझेदारी गर्दै  १५ रन जोडे। १६ औं ओभरको अन्तिम बलमा १० बलमा ६ रन बनाएका बिनोद आउट भए भने त्यसको लगत्तै १७ औं ओभरको पहिलो बलमै अहमद राजाले पारशको विकेट झारे।
त्यसपछि मैदानमा छिरेका बसन्त रेग्मीले सत्रौँ ओभरको अन्तिम बलमा नेपाली ईनिङकै पहिलो छक्का प्रहार गरे। तर उनि पनि क्रिजमा धेरै बेर टिक्न सकेनन्, १८.३ ओभरमा युएईका खुरम सहजादले उनलाई बोल्ड गरे। अन्तिम ओभरमा युएईका रोहन मुस्ताफाले सोमपाललाई बोल्ड गरे भने ईनिङको अन्तिम बलमा शक्ति गौचन रन आउट हुँदा नेपाल पुरा २० ओभर खल्दै ९५ रनमा अलआउट भयो।

९६ रनको सामान्य लक्ष्य पाएको युएईले पनि खराब सुरुवात गर्यो। ईनिङको दोश्रो बलमै कप्तान पारश खड्काले युएईका अमजद अलीलाई एलबिडब्ल्यू धरापमा पारे। त्यसपछि आएका युएईका अनुभवि कप्तान खुराम खान र अहमद राजाले युएईको ईनिङलाई सुस्त गतिमा अगाडी बढाए। चौथो ओभरको दोश्रो बलमा तिब्र गतिका बलर सोमपालले अहमदलाई आउट पारे। युएई सम्हालिँदै ब्याटिङ गर्दै थियो। शक्ति गौचनले युएईका कप्तान खुराम खानलाई आठौँ ओभरमा आउट पारे। युएईका ब्याट्सम्यानहरुलाई नेपाली बलरले खुलेर खेल्न दिईरहेका थिएनन् तर लक्ष्य मात्र ९६ रनको थियो। नवौँ र दशौँ ओभरमा युएईले बाउण्ड्री हान्न सकेन।  स्वप्निल पटिलले ४१ बलमा ३३ रनको पारी खेलेपछि युएई जितको नजिक पुगेको थियो।
१८ औं ओभरमा कप्तान पारश खड्कालाई एक चौका र एक छक्का हान्दै युएईका रोहन मुस्ताफाले जित दिलाए।

यसरी टस हारेर पहिले ब्याटिङको निम्तो पाएको नेपाली टोलीले खराब ब्याटिङ गर्दै बनाएको ९५ रन युएईले ७ बल बाँकी छँदै ४ विकेट गुमाएर पुरा गर्यो।  नेपालले टि-२० विश्वकपको पहिलो खेल आईतबार हङकङसँग खेल्नेछ।

दोश्रो अभ्यास खेलमा पनि नेपाल पराजित

२० ओभरको विश्वकप खेल्न बंगलादेश पुगेको नेपाली क्रिकेट टोलीले आज खेलेको आप्नो दोश्रो अभ्यास खेलमा पनि पराजय भोगेको छ। हिजो आफ्नो पहिलो अभ्यास खेलमा आएरल्याण्डसँग ५ विकेटले हार ब्यहोरेको नेपाल आज पुरानो प्रतिद्वन्दि युएईसँग ६ विकेटले पराजित हुन पुग्यो।

प्रशिक्षणमा रहँदा उनिहरुले एमसिसीको युथ क्लवबाट विभिन्न प्रतियोगितामा सहभागि भएर खेल्ने अवसर पाएका थिए। प्रतियोगितामा उत्कृष्ट प्रदर्शन गर्न नसके पनि यसले यि युवा खेलाडिमा आत्मविस्वास बढाउने निश्चित छ।

Nepal's ailing youth cricket showed its first symptoms when the Under-19 team finished third in 2009 ACC Elite Cup and failed to qualify for the U-19 World Cup in 2010. Before that, Nepal had featured in every edition of the U-19 World Cup since 2000. The youth side this year put up Nepal's worst performance, ending fourth in this year's ACC U-19 Elite Cup. Prior to this Nepal, had won the tournament four times in a row between 2001 to 2007. They finished third in 2009 and second in 2011. Will Nepal cricket take a big leap backward in the following years?

The transformation theory
The Nepal senior team hadn't had much success till a few years ago, but the U-19 side was winning hearts as early as 2000 when they beat Kenya and competed with South Africa to enter the second round of the U-19 World Cup. At that stage, everyone believed that when the U-19 team transformed into the senior side, Nepal would start achieving success at the senior level. And it did. Given that precedent, with a weak youth team (and a failed domestic structure), we will have a weaker senior side in 6-10 years.
The early symptoms: Decline in fast bowling
What is more disappointing for Nepal cricket is the realisation that the failure of the youth team could get hold of the senior team if nothing is done about it. Nepal's weakened fast-bowling attack is an early sign. The side had one of the best fast-bowling units amongst the non-Test playing nations with the likes of Mehboob Alam, Binod Das and Raju Khadka. However, in the past one year, Nepal's fast bowling has failed. Their performance was so disappointing that the team played without a front-line seam bowler in the last two matches of WCL Division 3.
Ageing team
Despite the absence of a strong domestic structure, the senior Nepali team was carefully built by Roy Dias who hand-picked and personally groomed players from the youth side. Players like Paras KhadkaGyanendra Malla and Sharad Vesawkar, were already part of the senior team when they were still U-17 players. They would feature in matches for Nepal in the U-17, U-19 and senior teams, which helped their growth tremendously.
Now that we have good senior team, the 'youth first' policy doesn't fit anywhere. The youth side has been completely neglected. The U-19 team did not even have a proper practice camp before they flew for the ACC U-19 Elite cup.
In few years, age will catch up with the senior team. With the domestic structure neglected and Nepal's youth cricketers short on experience, the future doesn't look good at all.
What now?
If we do not give the young cricketers the attention they deserve, the success of Nepal cricket will be short-lived. With World Cup qualifiers so close, there's no point experimenting with the senior side. A good domestic structure can help groom young players, like Dias did when he involved them in the senior side.
One aspect that needs to be explored is school cricket. School cricket is played at an exceptionally high level in countries like India and Sri Lanka. In Nepal, however, it doesn't exist. Lack of cricket in schools is hindering cricket development in Nepal, making it difficult for kids to convince their parents about the feasibility of taking up the sport. Nepal hasn't had a single player in the senior side who has made it to the team solely on the basis of his performances in the national tournament. The team comprises players who have played for the country at the youth level.
Moreover, the players who excel in the game in their early or mid-20s never make it to the side and usually do not bother improving. Domestic cricket in Nepal needs serious restructuring, one that promotes young players so that the selectors can fall back on them when needed.
