KATHMANDU: Nepal is playing a three-match ODI series against Canada in Kathmandu.

The matches will be played at TU International Cricket Ground on February 8, 10, and 12.

Canada is visiting Nepal a week before Nepal kicks off its ICC World Cricket League 2 campaign (2024-27) with a home tri-series with Namibia and the Netherlands.  The tri-series begins on February 15.

Canada is coming to Nepal after losing to Malaysia in the final of the Hong Kong ODI Tri-series in Hong Kong. Although Canada defeated Malaysia and Hong Kong by five wickets and 56 runs, respectively, in the league stage, Malaysia stunned it to win the final by three wickets with one ball remaining.

Nepal, on the other hand, hasn’t played an ODI match since losing to India in the 2023 Asia Cup in Sri Lanka on September 4. The national team players, however, played in the PM Cup Men’s National Cricket Tournament 2024 – the premier domestic tournament in the country.
