Basanta becomes President recruit

President Travels and Tours has roped in national team spinner Basanta Regmi as its envoy on Monday.

 

Amidst a programme, the company President Bhola Bickram Thapa announced Regmi as it brand ambassador. According to the deal Basanta will get a pay cheque of Rs 15,000, while he can also be given additional amount just in case he works for the company’s product promotion.

 

Thapa said it came as a part of responsibility to hire Regmi. “More than thinking about the deal, we took it as a responsibility. We felt that we need to do something for our cricketers and this is just a beginning,” said Thapa.

 

“I consider myself lucky for having Basanta as our brand ambassador because he is already an established cricketer and a hero of the game in Nepal,” added Thapa.

 

Basanta appreciated the gesture from the company adding: “I would like to thank the company for hiring me. This will definitely motivate other players of the country as well to do better in the game. If I can be useful for the company, then that could be even better,” said the left arm spinner who recently completed 100 wickets in the World Cricket League.

 

Basanta’s hiring as an ambassador came as an initiation from Zohra Sports Management’s (ZSM) new programme Corporate Adoption Programme (CAP). Under the CAP, ZSM will mediate with various corporate houses to help them recruit national team cricketers.

 

“This is just a start. We felt that there is a need of such programme. In the coming days, we will initiate in involving other cricketers with the corporate houses,” said Amir Akhtar, Managing Director of ZSM.
