Nepal Cricket and its fans have opened new avenues for the ICC, achieving significant milestones in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Although they didn’t win a single match, the way they played and the support they received is commendable. This wasn’t an Asia-based Cricket World Cup; it was held in the West Indies. Despite the foreign terrain, the Nepal Cricket team fought fiercely in every match. Notably, against South Africa, they nearly dismantled the formidable South African bowling attack.

They also gave a tough fight to the Netherlands, and the match against Sri Lanka was canceled due to rain. The support Nepal received in the USA and the West Indies was immense, even more than some major teams.
