Former India all-rounder Manoj Prabhakar on Thursday resigned as the head coach of the Nepal team after a four-month stint, the country’s cricket board announced. Prabhakar, 59, who took 96 wickets and scored 1,600 runs in 39 Tests between 1984 and 1995, was appointed to the post in August. He also played 130 ODIs, taking 157 wickets.
The Cricket Association of Nepal announced on its official Twitter handle, “Mr. Manoj Prabhakar has resigned from the post of Head Coach of Nepal Men’s National Cricket Team with immediate effect on 15 December 2022.”
“Cain has accepted his resignation and wished him well for the future.” Prabhakar was at the helm of affairs for the Nepal men’s team in just five T20Is and seven ODIs, including four matches in the World Cup Super League 2.
Under him, Nepal had a successful tour of Kenya, winning the five-match T20I series 3–2 and then a 3–0 clean sweep in the ODIs. Nepal also won the home ODI series against UAE 2-1 last month.
