Prior to departure for the ACC Women’s Tournament, Nepal’s women received a boost when the Nepal Philatelic Society lent its support by bringing out 500 commemorative stamps to mark Nepal's first-ever international women’s match. The cover also includes an inset of the Nepal men's side. Earlier this year a five-rupee stamp was issued to celebrate the success of the men's team.
Shreedhar Gautam, the director general of the Postal Service Department, wished the women's team success in the ACC tournament. "Sports, especially cricket, has played an important role for the pride of the nation," he said.
