Pubudu Dassanayake appointed head coach of national cricket team
KATHMANDU: Pubudu Dassanayake has been appointed as the head coach of Nepal national cricket team for the second time.
A meeting of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) held on Saturday morning made the decision to appoint Dassanayake as the head coach of the national cricket team.
Dassanayake was appointed as the head coach of the national cricket team for the first time in 2011. He resigned from the post in 2015.
During his tenure, Dassanayake managed to carve out a name for himself as a coach, guiding the country to its maiden ICC World Twenty20 appearance in 2014 and leaping to the ICC World Cricket League Championship—a premier one-day competition for non-test playing teams—from Division 4.
Nepal cricket team, which has been without a coach after Dav Whatmore tendered his resignation in September, got a new head coach nearly after three months.
