The Nepalese Cricket Team captain steps down after the ICC reinstated the team
Nepal Cricket Team captain Paras Khadka decided to step down from his post. He announced his resignation through his Twitter account. The decision was made after the International Cricket Council (ICC) readmitted the team.
The Nepalese Cricket Team was banned from playing the sport since 2016. They were sanctioned after the Nepalese board was found breaching the ICC regulations. Yesterday, they were reinstated with their ICC membership. They will also start to receive funds from the governing body.
‘Great to know that the suspension of Nepal cricket has been lifted and would like to wish the new committee to work for the betterment of Nepal cricket, players and its stakeholders. I have hereby decided to resign from my post as the captain of Nepal cricket team as there has to be a new way of taking things forward with a fresh start and a committed vision with everyone involved. Would like to thank all the players, coaches, umpires, groundsmen, friends, and my family who have helped me throughout this incredible journey. Until next time’, Khadka wrote.
Khadka led the team and won a lot of achievements such as their first ODI series win against the United Arab Emirates. He also set a record for being the first Nepalese cricketer to score an ODI hundred. Last month, during a T20I series against Singapore, he also became the first player from their country to score a century in the said format.
