The ICC has welcomed confirmation from the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) of a Special General Meeting (SGM) to be held on 19-20 April to consider constitutional change that will reform governance of the sport and pave the way towards reinstatement of ICC membership.

The SGM will consider proposed changes to the constitution that have been recommended by the Nepal Advisory Group (NAG), comprising stakeholders from across the game in Nepal and set up by the ICC. Adopting the changes will enable CAN to move towards meeting the reinstatement conditions set out by the ICC in May 2016.

Following Nepal’s recent achievement of securing One Day International (ODI) status for the first time in its history, the adoption of the revised constitution at the SGM will ensure Nepal is on course for the consideration of reinstatement at the ICC Annual General Meeting (AGM) in July 2018.

The ICC Deputy Chairman, Imran Khwaja said: “The ICC Board has been very clear in putting in place strict requirements which included the adoption of the constitution, addressing outstanding reinstatement conditions and subsequent elections in order for Nepal to be considered for readmission into membership of the ICC.

“The ICC Board meeting takes place immediately after the scheduled SGM where Nepal’s membership is on the agenda and we are watching this situation very closely. It is our expectation that the constitutional changes – which have been developed through a thorough consultation process with the Nepali cricket community - are adopted in full and without alteration as the next step towards Nepal’s reinstatement at the ICC AGM in July 2018”.
