When not officiating, one of the Associate nations’ premier umpires Buddhi Pradhan (18 ODIs and counting) gives courses on umpiring within Nepal. The latest, an elementary program in Birgunj in south-central Nepal on the Indian border took in 18, including one lady who, as is their wont, scored the highest marks in the concluding examination.

ICC Associate and Affiliate International Panel Umpire Buddhi Pradhan conducted the course with the assistance of local umpires Manohar Adhikari, Hiralal Yadav and Basu Dew Karna. “The main issues to communicate were the changes in Laws in the past two years particularly with T20s and Powerplays. I was glad that the umpires and scorers picked them up quickly,” said Buddhi. In his concluding remarks former Cricket Association of Nepal Vice-President current Birgunj District Cricket Association President Tarani Bikram Shah highlighted the importance of skilled human resources for the development of cricket in Nepal.
