Former national cricket team captain Paras Khadka has landed Adidas as his bat sponsor. Paras has signed a one-year contract with EN Sports, the authorized distributor of Adidas sports gears and apparels in India.
The star cricketer was in talk with the Indian company for the last year while he was playing for Team Abu Dhabi in the Abu Dhabi T10 League. EN Sports are also the clothing partners of Team Abu Dhabi.
“Since the time I played for the Team Abu Dhabi, we were having discussions of a contract. As cricket stalled due to COVID-19, the contract was pending,” Paras told cricketingnepal.com. According to the contract, Paras will use Adidas logo in his bat and in return the company will provide him with cricket gears for a year.
Paras had previously used Twister bat after playing with SM bat for seven years. The allrounder is set to play for Bagmati Province in the ongoing Prime Minister Cup One Day National where he will feature in two matches before leaving for Abu Dhabi for this season’s T10 League.
Paras will be playing role of a mentor for Abu Dhabi this season which begins from January 28 in Abu Dhabi. Kushal Malla, Karan KC and Sompal Kami are the three Nepali cricketers featuring in T10 League this season.
