Congratualtion to Raju Basnet to become the first bowler for grabbing 5o wickets in Nepal's domestic national league. It's all because of your conitnuous hard work; just keep it up and show your great performance in upcoming important international matches as well (the national selectors must pick you up for the national team as seen from your excellent performance in the domestic league matches). We wish you all the best for your coming matches.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
