Paras resumes playing as DPL opener to raise funds

Apr 08, 2017 | Kaushal Adhikari |

National team skipper Paras Khadka will end his hiatus when he leads a Nepal XI side against Dhangadhi XI in the opening day of the Sagarmatha Cement Dhangadhi Premier League on Sunday.

A charity match between Nepal XI and Dhangadhi XI is kicking off the most awaited cricket tournament of the country. Paras will be making his first appearance after missing the World Cricket League Championship match against Kenya at home early this month.

The charity match will collect funds for Dream Fapla Project and education for the children of deceased former coach of the region Arjun Khadka.

Speaking ahead of the match, Paras said: "The match will be a good experience playing in front of local fans against the local team." Padam KC will be leading the Dhangadhi XI team.

"More than the match, our aim is to collect fund for Dream Fapla project. This is the first time we are playing such kind of game but I think we should continue playing these sorts of matches in near future to collect fund for the development of the game," said Paras.

Dhangadhi skipper KC said the match is going to be a good experience for the local players. "We hope we can give tough fight against the national players. This will help our juniors to get exposure. As the match is played for a noble cause, the crowd will also enjoy the game," said KC.
