    KATHMANDU, July 27: The Twenty20 cricket tournament under the inaugural Nepal Premier League (NPL) will be held in a clean and transparent manner, Tarini Bikram Shah, acting president of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN), has said. The T20 league remains stalled following disputes between CAN and event manager Zohra Sports Management, and factionalism in CAN.

"It was Zohra who initially proposed the idea to conduct an NPL and this is great for the game," Shah was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.com, a popular cricket news website. "However, we wanted the tournament to be held in a transparent manner - whether it be around the code of conduct, anti-corruption or other financial matters. There is no question about the utility of the NPL, we just need to ensure that it is run in a clean and transparent manner."
