Nepal and Uganda sealed their progression after reaching the final of Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 3 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Thursday. In the final, Nepal defeated Uganda by 62 runs and the two sides will now join host Namibia, Canada, Kenya and the Netherlands in WCL Div.2.
Mr Srinivasan said: “The two finalists competed consistently over the past week, and deserve to be promoted. Their performances demonstrate the strong standard and depth of cricket in Associate and Affiliate countries, and I congratulate both teams on their achievements.
Mr Srinivasan also thanked the tournament organisers and the venues for staging a successful tournament.
“I would like to thank the Malaysian Cricket Association, the venues and all the staff and volunteers for their role in organising this important ICC event,” he said.
