Nepal ranked top team in ACC ranking

Nepal is ranked the top team in the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Non-Test Playing Nations Tournament Ranking published on December 15.

Binaya Raj Pandey, the president of Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) and ACC vice-president, said that a meeting of the ACC Executive Committee in Dhaka on December 12 endorsed the ranking.

Hong Kong is ranked second, Malaysia third, Afghanistan fourth and Singapore fifth in the ranking based on a two-year cycle for men’s cricket – senior as well as age-group.

The newest ranking is determined by the teams’ placings in the ACC Trophies, ACC U-19 and U-16 Cups.

The list of top 10, also the qualifiers for the ACC Twenty20 Cup 2011, includes Oman (sixth), Saudi Arabia (seventh), Kuwait (eighth), UAE (ninth) and Bhutan (tenth).

The ranking will stay in place until December 2012 and it is the determining factor to split the annual development budget of USD 1,400,000 among 18 non-Test playing nations of Asia, according to ACC.

During the last two years, Nepal finished ACC Trophy Elite and ACC U-16 Elite as runners-up and ACC U-19 Elite as third-placed team.

Nepal was ranked second in 2007-09 ranking.

“Since we are top team in the ranking, ACC will provide us between USD 50,000 to 60,000 for infrastructure development,” Pandey added.

    Nepal ranked top only bcoz of the hardwork of the players …and our talu president only tells we developed infrastructure ,F**K..all shit…he regularly gives things of development to save his position…to show the ppl that he has done soemthing…from inside he has done nothing..esto taal le hudaine hai…and clearly he shows his attitude towards players…by telling the amount received from ICC and ACC is only for development of infrastructure…tht means he doesn’t even think about helping his players…
