Profile

An allrounder who bats in the middle order and bowls medium pace, Paras Khadka represented Nepal in three Under-19 World Cups, in 2004, 2006 and 2008, while also a regular in the senior national team. Groomed for captaincy through positions of leadership in age-group teams, he took over the national captaincy in 2009. He is also a man for a pressure situation - he bowled the crucial last over in the Plate semi-final against South Africa in 2006 to take his team into the final and finished the tournament as the highest wicket-taker for Nepal. Khadka was the Man of the Tournament in the Under-19 ACC Trophy in 2007, a performance which helped Nepal qualify for what was his last Under-19 World Cup. Khadka took 12 wickets in the 2008 World Cup and led Nepal to their second successive Plate final. Khadka enjoyed reasonable personal success at the ICC World Cricket League Division Four tournament in Italy in August 2010, averaging 38.25 with the bat and 26.00 with the ball, but Nepal faltered at the tournament and failed to secure promotion to Division Three
