Although limited to 4th position in ICC WCL Division Two, Nepali Cricket Team got chance to be in Division one according to CAN source. Nepal even got chance to play ODI World cup selection which is happening after 4 years from now. But we missed the chance to play Intercontinental game.
Losing first game with Uganda by 2 runs but winning three consecutive games with Netherlands, Canada & Namibia led Nepal to top two in the points table. But after the dramatical lost with Kenya, Nepal was drawn back to 4th position in the table. According to the rule, first two teams in the table were to be promoted to Division 1, 3rd and 4th remaining in Division 2 and last two to be relegated to Division 3. But ICC is planning to promote top 4 teams to Division One. And now it is officially confirmed.
