International cricket is finally returning to Nepal after a long COVID-19 break as the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN), along with the Malaysian Cricket Association (MCA) and the Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond (KNCB), are set to host a tri-nation T20I series in Kathmandu.

A total of seven matches will be played among Nepal, the Netherlands and Malaysia between April 17th to 24th, with the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground set to host all seven T20Is. The tri-nation series will follow a double round-robin format, with the top two teams facing off in the final on the 24th of April.

In the first match of the series, hosts Nepal will lock horns with the Netherlands on Saturday.

Nepal last played international matches at the ACC Eastern Regional T20 in Bangkok in March 2020. The hosts’ squad is stacked with experienced players like Paras Khadka, Gyanendra Malla, and Binod Bhandari. Sandeep Lamichhane will also feature in the tri-series after being unsold at the IPL 2021 Auction. Nepal are currently 15th in the ICC T20I standings with 180 points.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, have not played international cricket since winning the T20 World Cup Qualifier held in Dubai in November 2019. There are several youngsters in their squad, accompanied by a handful of familiar faces like Pieter Seelaar, Max O’Dowd, Paul van Meekeren, and Ben Cooper. The Netherlands are currently 17th in the ICC T20I standings.

Nepal will start as favorites to win Saturday’s game against the Netherlands, who will miss the services of most of their experienced campaigners.
