Former President of Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) Jai Kumar Nath Shah has declined to accept his appointment as an advisor of CAN.
In a letter sent to National Sports Council (NSC) member-secretary Yubaraj Lama on November 20, Shah wrote that he was offered a similar position in 2006 but he declined to ensure ‘open field for new board so that they can work freely’.
“Thank you for your kind offer but my decision is irrevocable,” he wrote to Lama.
NSC had appointed him as the advisor on November 18.
Shah was president of CAN for more than 40 years before his committee was dissolved on September, 2006. He was also awarded Lifetime Achievement Award by International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2006.
