Two Nepali cricketers have joined up with the MCC Young Cricketers scheme to undergo a six week development program at the Home of Cricket.
Naresh Budhayer and Rajesh Magar are the first cricketers from Nepal to be a part of the prestigious programme, run by MCC Head Coach Mark Alleyne.
They model themselves on Tendulkar
"Nepal are going through a surge of good young talent at the moment, performing well as an associate team," Alleyne told Lord's TV.
"As a consequence of that we have some young cricketers playing some really good cricket.
"Part of the MCC mantra is to give these guys some exposure in different conditions and against different opposition to help them develop themselves and also Nepal cricket."
Nepal, which borders India, became an International Cricket Council (ICC) associate side in 1996. They currently play in the World Cricket League Division Three which includes other minor cricket playing nations such as Oman, Uganda and Italy.
