Immediately after International Cricket Council revoking suspension on Nepal Cricket Team, the skipper Paras Khadka handed his resignation from the captaincy role. He has been the longest-serving captain for Nepal, who led the team for almost a decade time.
Recently, Paras Khadka led Nepal to their first-ever ODI series win over UAE. And also, he became the first player from his country to score centuries in ODIs and T20Is. Nepal has been reinstated on a conditional basis following their 2016 suspension for breach of the ICC regulations which prohibit government interference and require free and fair elections.

As captain, Paras led Nepal through their rise to ODI status which was finally achieved at the World Cup Qualifiers in Zimbabwe in 2018. Another major achievement during his tenure was leading Nepal to their first-ever major global event at senior level when they clinched a berth in the 2014 T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.
For the major part of his decade in charge, Khadka was the only dependable batsman in Nepal’s line-up. He provided the resolution at No. 3 and 4. And also, he was just as important as an offspinner. However, he sometimes bowled medium pace when Nepal was lacking for genuine seamers. It would be interesting to see who will take the charge.
