The Nepal national cricket team has received its new captain – Gyanendra Malla. Malla had earlier served as the vice-captain of the team, while Paras Khadka was the captain.
When Khadka was asked about who according to him should be Nepal’s next cricket captain, he unhesitatingly named Gyanendra Malla.
Paras Khadka stepped down from the captaincy after the International Cricket Council confirmed the reinstatement of the Cricket Association of Nepal.
Likewise, Dipendra Singh Airee has replaced Malla as the Vice-Captain of the Nepal national cricket team and Rit Gautam has been appointed as the captain of the Nepal U-19 Team, replacing Rohit Kumar Paudel.
