Cricket coach explains why Nepal cannot get over the hump

There was a great interview with RoyLuke Dias in the Rising Nepal a few weeks back. Dias hit boundaries on almost all the questions. I sensed no bitterness in the interview - he just stated the facts on Nepal's cricketing struggles. It really made me realize how fortunate we are to have him as our national team head coach.

In the interview he talks about Nepali cricket's weaknesses on and off the field, the reason Afghanistan was able to end Nepal's dominance in the youth ranks and why our players cannot post a decent tally on the scoreboard.
