Dhoni to visit Nepal
World Cup winning Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni will visit Nepal for a day and interact with Nepali cricketers for a couple of hours at the TU Cricket Ground, daily newspapers reported.
Quoting Indian Embassy’s spokesperson Apoorva Srivastav, The Kathmandu Post and Kantipur national dailies reported that Dhoni will visit Nepal on June 15.
“It is subject to confirmation but it’s true that Dhoni is arriving for a day,” Srivastava was quoted as saying.
“Nepal is the home of some of the most passionate cricket fans and many people love watching Indian cricket. There have been constant requests from various fraternities to bring in Indian cricketers to Kathmandu,” the newspapers quoted a source at Indian Embassy. “So we’ve decided to invite Dhoni and he happily accepted it,”
Dhoni reportedly gave his words to visit Kathmandu soon after the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League, where his team Chennai Super Kings finished runners-up to Kolkata Knights Riders.
“He has fixed the dates himself and informed that he will be coming here on June 15,” the newspaper further added.
The Indian Embassy has already informed the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) to organise a camp and talk programme where Dhoni would be passing on tips and sharing his thoughts with Nepali cricketers.
Dhoni, who led India to the World Cup win in 2011 and World T20 Cup win in 2007, is rivaled Sachin Tendulkar for popularity in India and has become the darling boy for advertisers.
While in Nepal, Dhoni will also talk about cricket to Nepali cricket lovers at Hotel Yak & Yeti and visit Pashupatinath.
Dhani also captained Chennai Super Kings to victory in the 2011 Indian Premier League and in the Champions League.
Dhoni is currently captain of India in all three forms of the game

एउटा खेलाडीलाई निलम्बनको सव्द सुन्न पक्कै राम्रो लाग्दैन । निलम्बनमा पर्नु क्रिकेट र नेपाली खेल जगतका लागि राम्रो समाचार होइन । तर नेपाली क्रिकेट जसरी चलेको थियो, त्यसले यो अवस्था आउने पक्का थियो । निर्वाचित संघले आफ्नै पारामा चुनाव गरेर वैधानिकता नवीकरण गर्यो । त्यसमा कतिपय खुसी थिएनन । सरकारले निर्वाचन प्रक्रिया ठिक भएन भनेर […]...
