The Covid-19 pandemic has seen yet another proposed series bite the dust with Nepal's short tour of Qatar falling by the wayside.

Nepal had been due to travel to Doha next week for four days February 9-12, but that was cancelled on Sunday after an increase in the hospital admissions rate which had almost doubled.

It's another blow for cricket fans who had been looking forward to the clashes.

Nepal had named an initial 18-man squad for a training camp to prepare for the games, which were set to be the first opportunity for new Head Coach Dav Whatmore to run his eye over his new charges.
