The race for the new leadership of the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN), the official governing body of cricket in Nepal, has started.

With the opening ceremony of the Central General Assembly and Convention in Kathmandu on Friday, the faces ready for the new leadership have started to emerge.

So far, Chatur Bahadur Chand and Lumbini Province Cricket Association Vice President Binay Rajbhandari are in the fray for the post of President.

Only Rohan Singh is seen vying for the post of Vice President of CAN. Singh is likely to be elected unopposed since no one has challenged him for the post so far.

Paras Khadka, the former captain of the Nepali national cricket team, has been seen as a strong contender for the post of secretary. He is making preparations to contest the elections for the post from the Chand panel.

He is being challenged by Prashanta Bikram Malla, the then Acting General Secretary of CAN. The panel of Malla, who quit the CAN over the NSL controversy, has not been confirmed yet.

Similarly, Padam Khadka is contesting for the post of CAN's treasurer representing the Chand panel. However, efforts are being made to elect the new leadership unanimously.

A total of 86 people are casting votes in the CAN election, of which, minimum 44 votes are required to win the elections.
