KATHMANDU: Former national cricket team captain Paras Khadka, who announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday, has said that he will join cricket from a different role.
In a meeting with journalists on Wednesday, he said that his passion for cricket was over and he would return to his role related to cricket to face the challenges.
Cricketer Paras Khadka, who had earlier resigned as captain of the national team, announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday. Stating that his supporters were surprised by his announcement, former captain Khadka said that he had decided to retire after much thought. Asked which way to go now, Khadka said he wanted to come to cricket management.
While everyone is openly praising the contribution made by Paras Khadka to the current state of Nepali cricket, the question has arisen as to whether cricket can move forward or not. Khadka answered the query during a meeting on Wednesday. Stating that the new generation has now joined the national team and they have a lot of potential, Khadka said that the performance of the team means more than the individual.
Announcing his retirement, former captain Paras said he was planning to start a cricket academy and take it across the country soon. It is also a challenge to make the managerial journey as he thinks. Because the constitution of CAN has a provision that any player can participate in the election of Nepali cricket only after two years of leaving cricket career.
