One qualification spot for the 2019 T20 World Cup Qualifier will be on the line when Singapore, Kuwait, Malaysia, Nepal and Qatar play here from July 22-28.
The round-robin format will see all five teams play each other once, with the side that finish at the summit becoming one of the 14 teams to play in the United Arab Emirates in October and November for the chance to make next year’s T20 Men’s World Cup.
Nepal captain, Paras Khadka, who played for the MCC back in 2015, enjoys playing cricket for the life skills it can present and says: “Cricket helps you stay level headed. The ups and downs of life are similar to the highs and lows of a cricket match.
For Qatar captain Tamoor Sajjad Zafar, he was inspired to pick up a bat by his father who used to play at the weekends. And he thinks the sport has really brought people together in Qatar.
“Cricket has introduced us to so many different people belonging to various cultures and traditions. Still, this game has united each and every one of us,” he said.
