Nepal is scheduled to play with MCC for the third time at Lords, UK
London — Nepal is scheduled to visit the Home of cricket, The Lords, to play with MCC for the third time. Nepal will return to the ‘Home of Cricket’ in 2020 and are scheduled to take on Marylebone Cricket Club in a 50-over match on 24 August.
In 2016, they had defeated MCC by 41 runs. Last year, soon after gaining ODI status, they were joined by the Netherlands to play a triangular T20 tournament with the MCC.

Nepal and Netherlands had shared the trophy that series, with rain washing out the T20 between the sides, ICC Cricket reports.
The ties between MCC and Nepal have been growing in recent years. Earlier this month, the club toured the country for six matches: two 50-over matches, a three-day first-class match, and three T20 games.
The club’s charitable arm, meanwhile, is involved in a project to distribute cricket kits, lay nets and provide skills training for players and coaches in Pokhara, Nepal.
