Previously ICC has decided to shift the home match from Nepal to Dharamsala,India showing the reason of lack in preparation and ongoing conflicts in Cricket Board of Nepal, but later on special request from Nepalese side succeeded  in bringing it back to Nepal. The disappointed fans seem extremely happy by the latter decision of ICC.

It has always been amazing see the craze and passion of Nepalese towards sport;  especially when it’s an international cricket match played  in their backyard , same has been expected this time as well
