The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has been left red-faced after it used star Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag’s picture in a Nepal national team jersey in the annual souvenir published by it. The annual souvenir 2013 published by CAN has a Sehwag action picture on its cover, wearing a deep blue jersey of the Nepal cricket team. CAN had tried to blur the face of the Indian batsman but there is no denying that it’s a Sehwag picture which it has used.
CAN’s Executive Committee member and former national cricketer Kiran Rana admitted that it was indeed Sehwag’s picture that has been used in the cover of the souvenir. “Yes, it is Virender Sehwag’s picture that we have used in the cover of the CAN’s annual souvenir but if you have a closer look, we have blurred the face a bit. I can tell you that this is completely an unintentional mistake on our part,” Rana said.
