Kathmandu: The Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN)’s President Chatur Bahadur Chand has said the announcement of Paras Khadka, former Captain of the Nepali cricket team, to retire from international cricket was unexpected.
As Chand reacted, it was not the right time for the cricketer to announce his retirement from international cricket. According to him, CAN, the official governing body of cricket is discussing the matter and its formal opinion is awaited.
As he said, CAN was not pre-informed about the cricketer’s decision to retire from international cricket. “If we were informed beforehand, the situation could be different. The decision that came as a surprise is obviously not good for the nation and the country,” he said.
Khadka had informed CAN about the decision through an email at around 7:30 am today. CAN has scheduled the commencement of the closed training of the Nepali National Team in view of the ICC World Cricket League 2.
The 33-year-old cricketer who had begun his career at the cricketer at the age of 15 announced to take retirement from international cricket through social network this morning.
