Final at BSAM

Kathmandu, December 2:

The final of the ACC Under-15 Elite Cup cricket tournament will be held at the Birendra Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya (BSAM) grounds on Monday.

The final was scheduled at the Tribhuvan University Stadium, but Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) informed the rescheduling of the venue today. “As per the decision of ACC, the final of ACC U-15 Elite Cup 2007 will be held at the BSAM in Bhaktapur,” said CAN in a release.

Kuwait and Singapore will contest in final after seven teams including Nepal were disqualified for including over-age players. The ACC penalised seven countries — three semi-finalists Nepal, Afghanistan and Hong Kong and four other teams Oman, Thailand, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia — for having more than two over-age players, while the UAE were disqualified for not having two passport holders of the country in their team.
