Nepal’s Paras Khadka tests positive for Covid-19
Former Nepal captain Paras Khadka has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently “under home isolation”. The 33-year old was part of the Nepal training camp, at Tribhuvan University Stadium in Kathmandu, which included the BBL-bound Sandeep Lamichhane, Gyanendra Malla and Dipendra Singh Airee who had contracted the coronavirus too.
Khadka revealed this on Twitter, saying: “Having got mild symptoms, I isolated myself from the team over last two days and as I lost my smell and taste since yesterday evening, I conducted my PCR test this morning and the report has come out as Covid-19 positive.
As a result, Khadka will miss the Gautam Buddha Cup, which will begin on December 12. He was supposed to captain Team Narayani in the tri-series.
Khadka’s last competitive game was a T20I against Thailand in Bangkok in March 2020. Last month he had been shortlisted for the ICC men’s Associate cricketer of the decade award.
