Jul 13, 2019 | CN Staff |

Sompal Kami has become the third Nepalese cricketer to sign sponsorship deal with Red Rock after Bhim Sharki and Karan KC. 

The Nepali pace bowling spearhead has stuck a two-year deal with the Indian cricketing gear manufacturing company worth almost US$ 5000. Sompal will be provided with all necessary cricketing gears in a span of two years. Prior to the contract fee, he will get cash incentive which adds up to US$ 3000 to US$ 5000 for playing global international leagues in his contracted period. 

Last year, Red Rock had sponsored U-19 cricketer Bhim before landing Karan last month. Following the sponsorship deal with Karan KC earlier this month, they had sponsored Nepal under-19 cricket team's star Bhim Sharki last year.

“I would like to thank Red Rock team for the sponsorship and Manish Sir (Sakhalkar) for initiating the deal which is certain to motivate me to do further better for Nepal and all the other teams I am associated with,“ said Sompal Kami after signing the deal with the company. 

Red Rock co-owner, Shekhar Kaushik was excited to include Sompal in their family and quoted the all-rounder as a pillar of Nepali cricket. “Sompal Kami is one of the pillars of Nepali cricket. A whole team can be built around players like Sompal and Karan (KC). We are very positive about Bhim’s career as well given the potential he has. We would like to proudly welcome Sompal in RR family,”  Shekhar Kaushik, co-owner of the company, mentioned in press release. 

Red Rock sports was establised back in 2007 in Meerut, India. It has a history of serving Indian star players like of Sachin Tendulkar, Virendra Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Former Mumbai based Ranji player, Manish Sakhalkar, is helping the company to scout the talent in Nepal. Sakhalkar is currently residing in Kathmandu. The company is close to open its outlet in Kathmandu.
