Third edition of Everest Premier League to kick off December 8

Kathmandu, October 4

The third edition of Everest Premier League (EPL) has been scheduled for the opening on December 8. The tournament will last till December 22.

The organisers announced the date amidst a press conference in Kathmandu on Thursday.

The organising company’s Managing Director Amir Akhtar said preparations had already begun for the tournament. The company had already sent various documents to the International Cricket Council, seeking the global cricket governing body’s approval for the tournament, according to him.

“Hopefully, we will get the approval by November,” he added.

Meanwhile, some international players are likely to miss the tournament as the dates clash with other events. However, Akhtar said the date would not be changed considering the time of a handful of players.

“We have talked with the owners of the teams and they are okay with the dates,” he added.
