Dec 01, 2018 | CN Staff |
Pokhara Rhinos, one of the six franchises of the Everest Premier League, have flaunted their financial strength by adding a fourth foreign cricketer for this season. 

Having already roped in South African big hitter Richard Levi, Scottish captain Kyle Koetzer and English County cricketer Paul Couglin, Rhinos said it has also roped in Sunny Bhimsariya, the former Hong Kong U-19 national who was born in Nepal.

No other team has recruited more than three international cricketers in their squad. The 25-year-old Bhimsaria is a right-handed batsman who also bowls right-arm leg spin. He is a part of Hong Kong A team since 2011. Bhimsaria said he is excited to join the Rhinos team. 

"I am ecstatic to come to Nepal and play for the Pokhara Rhinos. Nepal is my birth country and in many ways has fueled my passion for cricket in my early years. I have been following Nepal's development in cricket, and glad that I can be a part of its continuing glory, through Pokhara Rhinos", he said. 

Bhimsaria was a part of the Kowloon Canton team that claimed this season's Hong Kong T20 Blitz -- a premier Twenty20 competition of the country. Rhinos will also be coached by Nathan Dodd -- a Level-3 certified coach from Australia. Everest Premier League commences from December 8 at the TU Stadium and runs till 22nd.
