'Biggest achievement for Nepal' - Khadka

Paras Khadka

Paras Khadka

I think today was the biggest achievement for Nepal cricket in the history of the game here. We’ve never won a tournament as a senior team and to win here and qualify for Division 4 is huge.

I was taken aback when USA decided to bat after they won the toss but after they had set a platform they were 150-odd for 2, then Rahul came on and completely changed the match. I think he bowled well to the field, and I think we took our best series of wickets during the Powerplay. I think perhaps the USA tried to slog the ball too much.

Today’s crowd was fantastic and their support really motivated us to do well. After yesterday where some individuals in the crowd had been a disappointment in their behaviour today’s set an example of what true Nepalese cricket fans should be.

We just had a crazy bus drive back from the ground – we get a police escort and the streets were lined with fans cheering and waving Nepalese flags – it’s something I never expected. I think tonight we’re definitely going to have a bit of a party! I think a team dinner is in order and then we’ll go out and celebrate the trophy and promotion.

This week has been an exciting one for me as captain and one that has made me proud to play for Nepal. The team has always had the talent but this time we’ve managed to break the jinx of not quite making it all the way. This is the first time the senior team has won and it feels really great.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my thoughts this week and hopefully I’ll be back on here again when we head to Division 4 in Italy this summer.

    its a shame, nepali people sont respect the game at all riot is all they know, nepal is riot!

  • R Sivasubramaniam on March 5, 2010, 0:42 GMT

    Proud Nepalis - shame on you to use your crowd to get into the Final. One thing is certain, there will be no crowd to help you in Italy, unless you export a few thousand. Those of you gloating over your promotion - you cheated and robbed Singapore! Remember that - one day it will come back and haunt you - but in the meantime, I hope the ICC has the guts to overturn the Technical committee's verdict and give Singapore its rightful place in Division 4. Nepal would not have been there without the crowd trouble.

  • Prabin Pradhan on March 3, 2010, 11:11 GMT

    First of all, I would like to congratulate the Nepalese Team for winning their first major title.

    But team management must think about the Opening Pair which is not clicking at all. Ofcourse, in the final Nepalese opener batted well but we need the opener who is reliable aswell as attacking who can create solid base for the middle order and Nepal must score atleast 250 in every game because we cannot only rely on our bowlers to win the matches. And Nepalese Team must also be mentally tough to win in pressure maches.

    While taiking about div 5 Nepal is a deserving champion as Nepal defeated each and every opponent including "Singapore" but I felt bad for Singapore as they missed out narrowly. Nepal proved in the final that they deserve to qualify.

    Best of luck for Nepalese Team for upcoming ACC Trophy and div 4.

  • Sabal gaire on March 2, 2010, 6:13 GMT

    Its nt worth wrting anything here if the concerned person(paras) takes da sugestion posted seriously. I was desperate 2 see nepal in div 4 and i was enjoying cricinfo but in da last 3 matches i saw how we were playing. Nepal wins league games very easily but fails in decider. I used 2 think nepal is unlucky so it happens but now i find i was wrong. The match against usa was so imp. but da way nepali fielders were playing seemed as if they have kneeled down. Ball directly goes 2 da fielder's hand within da circle n batsman manages da single easily no run out attemt from da fielder, ridiculous. When u see bating, so called poor although i don't see weak batsman. Upto no. 8 we can expect 50. But i dont understand y they dont like singles. To chase 170 we have 2 wait 50 overs although fine start from openers coz we hate singles. How can u be so LAZY when 10,000 fans r chanting ur names outside da rope n other lakhs r stucked in their t.v. not caring da poor broadcast. Nadkarni was playing so well against da spin he even managed 3 6s against basanta dat al we watching n even da shilpakar wished u would use pace attack 4 him but u gave ball 2 sangam, what a joke. Didn't u have idea dat every bal was imp. Nepal reach div 4 crawling who deserves 2 roar like a lion. How can u repeat ur mistake in da final. Dont u have post match analysis. Nadkarni always hits da same shot n u have no answer. Why u tried da same pair al da time although they gave us not more than frustation. Khakurel n bhandari were also in da squad then why r they not tried. Let us know we r listened. At least write a single reply note. Dont repeat mistakes again. Be open 4 suggestion n take useful ones. U r in excellent form. Target div 3(now) make us proud make NEPAL proud. Jay nepal

  • Anil Kalaver on March 2, 2010, 3:22 GMT

    While the whole cricketing world talks of Croud behavior and banning the country with undesiarable condut of the Croud here we are praising them! High time ICC looks at these starts doing something with the emerging nations in Cricket and teaches them a few things! While do congratulate Nepal for having beaten USA in the final, they would never have been there if the match had gone for the full 50 overs! Congratulation to the Nepali Croud for helping Nepal by their disgusting display and helping Nepal get in the Final at the cost of Singapore by the "Skin of the teeth"0.0035NRR!!!

  • Shekhar basnet on March 1, 2010, 13:35 GMT

    Well congrats team gurkha.but the biggest setbacks of nepali team was once again exposed.ie inability to overcome nerves at crucial moments.remember we have lost twice in the semis in previous 2 acc trophy which cost us the progress to compete in the asian cup againts the world superhouse of the sport like pak ind sl.In the previous semifinal of the wcl div 5,having won all previous 5 matches in the serious we failed to defend some odd 140 run against afghan(they have qualified to t20wc thereon).even in the fridays match when we atleast should have prevent a bad loss to progres we nearly fumbled,thanks to the crowd.so we must get hold over our nerves at the most crucial moments.

  • subash Aryal on March 1, 2010, 12:16 GMT

    Congrates to Nepali Team, But its very diffcult to overcome from div.4 with this type of batting.we must improve our batting, otherwise we all r suffer a bad news when we play at div 4.nevertheless best of luck Nepal, hope u will do better

  • RAMBHU ACHARYA on March 1, 2010, 9:38 GMT

    CONGRATS.... Hope our batting clicks consistently in division IV now plus we need some luck again from somewhere (not from nepalese crowd in Italy). The trophy belongs to NEPAL....BEST OF LUCK.

  • anil phuyal on March 1, 2010, 8:34 GMT

    just do your best.We all r with you....we are proud of our team......

  • R Sivasubramaniam on March 1, 2010, 8:13 GMT

    This may not be printed - buy I am sure you will read. We at Singapore feel that your crowd should be given the gold medal for their wonderful behavoiur in the first match against USA

  • suman chaulagain on March 1, 2010, 6:30 GMT

  • Anil Koshy on March 1, 2010, 6:28 GMT

    Well done friends...good to see Nepal Cricket coming of age. They should be given chance to play against their neighbours like India, Bangladesh, Srilanka & Pakistan. They will come good because they is a lot of natural talent in Nepal. ICC should invest money and time in countries like Nepal rather than wasting it on countries like USA, Canada & UAE who rely only on borrowed cricketers.

  • ujwal neupane on March 1, 2010, 5:57 GMT

    congratulation to my team. it makes me feel very good that my country is now on division 4.. but what public did on USA VS NEPAL game made me ashamed....

  • Shivamani on March 1, 2010, 5:54 GMT

    Well done... we are proud of our team..... B.K. was really fantastic...... Congratulation for the win and hope for the better future of player as well as the game in Nepal.......

  • Bhisma on March 1, 2010, 5:34 GMT

    First of all,it feels great to see Nepal performing well in the international arena.The big problem for Nepal in the past at the senior level has been that we perform brilliant in the league group but when it comes to knock out phase ,we weren't able to handle the pressure and we loose the chance of moving ahead.Otherwise,we were be moving head to head with the teams like Hongkong,UAE in the international level.Nevertheless,now we have started wining the crucial matches and have been able to show to ACC and ICC that we are also a top team from the affiliate group. Certainly,the division 4 gonna be challeng for us in new condition and atmosphere but we are hopefull being a Nepali that Nepali team wont let us down and will move to division 3 by being the top 2 team of the tournament.Cheers to the Nepalese Cricket Team and the Captain Paras Khadka who played 3 crucial knocks and Sarad along with Rahul,Shakti and all the players. I love Nepal and i am proud to be Nepali.

  • R Sivasubramaniam on March 1, 2010, 4:18 GMT

    Please remember to thank the Nepali crowd for helping you to get into the Finals by a 0,004 NRR. I hope you and your fellow cricketers can sleep and play after the way you (as hosts) kicked out Singapore! Siva from Singapore

  • Ram on March 1, 2010, 3:04 GMT

    Surprised, not much has been written about crowd involvement, which in turn affected the result..But, for the crowd trouble, USA and Singapore would have qualified. It is all fine for corwd to 'support' the home team, but this is taking it too far..dissappointed

  • Nepali Sports Lover on February 28, 2010, 22:06 GMT

    Congratulations!! Team Nepal, CAN and all the Nepalese for this achievement. To be in world cup we need a lot more improvements. It is not like we Nepalese have dearth of talent but honing the talent and skills are needed.

    I wish all the best for Team Nepal. I am sure we will play WC in cricket much earlier than Soccer. I hope soccer team learns something from cricket team.

    Jai Nepal

  • Kaivalagi on February 28, 2010, 14:53 GMT

    How disappointing it must be for the Singapore team to have had their place in the final taken away in such a deplorable manner. It is something the ICC needs to ensure can never happen again.

    All the celebrating Nepalis should remember that there is no victory without honour and the fact that they qualified for the final only through a riot caused by their own supporters means that there is no honour in this victory.

    Commiserations to Singapore.

  • Ali on February 28, 2010, 12:27 GMT

    I am at a loss. Why were 4 overs reduced from Nepal's total tally? How was this exact calculation done? How can they allow the crowd's rowdiness to help the home team and bring them back from the dead? It is utter injustice to the Singapore team who had heriocally done whatever they had been asked to to qualify. Not a word of regret or acknowledgment from you or anyone else in Nepal. Just sad...

  • Surya Prasad paudel on February 28, 2010, 11:36 GMT

    Dear Paras, This is the great success as Nepal is far behind in all types of sport and specially in Cricket. Well done and you all have given some cheer to the fans.Keep it Up! Best of Luck!

  • manish on February 28, 2010, 9:22 GMT

    great achievement paras !!! i hope you continue to write blogs and take suggestions... about friday's game, i didnnt feel nepal was desperate to win...you seemed to take the game lightly which nearly cost you promotion (in fact, it did) the team seemed too lazy to prevent singles and also to convert singles into doubles, you couldnt take advantage of more than 10000 fans. sangam is always too lazy, (stands in slip, no cheering, too lazy to chase as well); gyanendra, probably the best fielder was sent to guard boundary while laziest sangam was kept in gully (the most imp. position) also, you were conservative in fielding arrangements..(defensive from first ball) and i hope to see subash khakurel in italy (as an opener).. and fast bowlers need to provide some variation as well not the same ball every time (try variation not only pace) good luck !!! hope to catch you in finals or at least meet uae, which used to be playing with us !!

  • Sisir on February 28, 2010, 8:57 GMT

    Great Blog.

    We love our cricket. Boys keep performing and all the best for division four matches to be played at Italy on august.

    Best wished in advance to march to division three. Great display of batting by the young captain Mr Paras Khadka.

    Yonger players needs to be given more chances and groom them for future prospect. Budha haru lai side launu paryo like Deependra Choudry (good for nothing)..

    Cheers Guys

  • Paritosh on February 28, 2010, 5:21 GMT

    Well done Nepal....we deserved it...However it will be very difficult in Italy if the batsman continue to fail...We need lots of practise in the pitches similar to that of Italy...so practising in those sorts of pitches should start from today...and also the pitch there will not be friendly for the spinners and thus fast bowlers should play their part as well..Best of luck for Italy....

    Congratulations! and good luck for upcoming tournament.

  • Binod on February 28, 2010, 3:22 GMT

    Parash, Congratulations to you and the whole Nepalese team. It is indeed a great achievement. The Nepalese team really has talented players and we have the capacity to go way above the level we are playing right now. Remember, we were the team that defeated big names in U-19 tournaments and those players from those big teams are playing ODIs and test matches. So if you all believe in yourselves you could again beat those players in senior level. All we need is self believe. I think our team need some sort of mental strength to do better in pressure situation. Remember, we were in pressure the other day when we played against USA and we lost the match but the final was not and we won it. I still remember our previous division 5 semifinal match against Afganistan in Jersey. It was a winnable match but pressure got us. We need someone who could help us make tough in pressure situation. We need mental strength.

    We're really proud of you. All the best for the journey ahead. Lets play WC

  • jaya on February 28, 2010, 3:07 GMT

    Of course Paras....this is a great achievement for Nepal. The way the team played and came back to win USA is simply great. USA has got plenty of oppurtunity to play with other cricket powerhouses which is not the case for us. This proves we are one of the best non-test playing cricket team in the world. This team has got a lot of talents especially sharad, rahul, sangam, paras, mehboob and basanta. However, our opening batsmen are always struggling which could be a problem for DIV. 4. We need to play more and more cricket with our neighbouring cricket power houses. CAN does not seem to have done enough in this respect. Anyways congratulations for the victory and hope you guys will continue this. Your captaincy was great and this success has pleased millions of Nepalese around the world.

  • Nirmal Rijal on February 28, 2010, 3:05 GMT

    Paras, It is truly a honor to see the senior Nepali team win a major for the first time. Hats off to you, the team and the coach. All the best for div 4 in Italy. Have faith in yourselves and you will win that. The batting has been the weak link so I think you will need to focus on the team's batting, especially the opening pair. And also, on building on a good start to get a good total. The bowling has been exceptional. Rahul was great in the final and the Regmi brothers have been good throughout. I met you when we had a sport discussion meet at Nagarkot in late 2008 (Equal Access), and it has been good to see you progress to Captain of team Nepal since then. Keep it up. In the midst of the loadshedding, bandhas and constant political bickering, you boys give us something to look forward to. Nirmal, Brisbane, Australia

  • Pallav raj paudel on February 27, 2010, 17:22 GMT

    it is Nepal's great achievement but it is not enough with respect to the quality and talent of Nepalese players.Nepal have to do a lot more in coming days.Nepal has good bowling but the main factor that do not clicks is batting even it is little bit improved.Nepal must continue playing like this and hope Nepal will qualify for 2015 worldcup.

  • Uzwal on February 27, 2010, 16:16 GMT

    congratulation to u and infact all of us. U did a fantastic job as a captain.U have become such a good allrounder.Best of luck to u in the future. My request to u as a fan is that plase give an opportunity for new comer as well..specially openers ,we really need to find openers who can give us a good start.We really need to know how to score 250 at least if we are competing with big guns like knya,ireland,canada and even afghanstan.our middle order and spin department is alrite.we need few good opening batsmen and few very quick bowlers.Thats it u guys have made us proud.Thank u very much for all ur hard work and keep doing well.

  • Nuhendra Kumar Giri on February 27, 2010, 16:08 GMT

    Hi paras bro...I m a enthusiastic cricket lover of nepal.I think the fight for division 4 will be tougher bcoz the team like ireland is there.Moreover USA is also a tough challenge...so we need a good batting strength.I may be wrong but we need Kanishka chaugain back in the squad.I may be too much pessimistic but i dont know what the chances are.I have seen him batting with sarad and he has a good technique and wide range of shots. at last i want to congratulate you for this dazzling victory and I really enjoyed your captaincy.good luck

    yeah, My Nepal My Pride, skipper it was a great win, spinners are good, but need to work on openers. Cheers for the win;

    Hi paras bro...I m a enthusiastic cricket lover of nepal.I think the fight for division 4 will be tougher bcoz the team like ireland is there.Moreover USA is also a tough challenge...so we need a good batting strength.I may be wrong but we need Kanishka chaugain back in the squad.I may be too much pessimistic but i dont know what the chances are.I have seen him batting with sarad and he has a good technique and wide range of shots. at last i want to congratulate you for this dazzling victory and I really enjoyed your captaincy.good luck

    congratulation to u and infact all of us. U did a fantastic job as a captain.U have become such a good allrounder.Best of luck to u in the future. My request to u as a fan is that plase give an opportunity for new comer as well..specially openers ,we really need to find openers who can give us a good start.We really need to know how to score 250 at least if we are competing with big guns like knya,ireland,canada and even afghanstan.our middle order and spin department is alrite.we need few good opening batsmen and few very quick bowlers.Thats it u guys have made us proud.Thank u very much for all ur hard work and keep doing well.

    it is Nepal's great achievement but it is not enough with respect to the quality and talent of Nepalese players.Nepal have to do a lot more in coming days.Nepal has good bowling but the main factor that do not clicks is batting even it is little bit improved.Nepal must continue playing like this and hope Nepal will qualify for 2015 worldcup.
