The two wins for Nepal – against Afghanistan and Hong Kong - in their maiden appearance in the ICC World Twenty20 - will have a huge impact on the country’s cricket in the future believes the side’s skipper Paras Khadka.

However the 26-year-old captain believes they will need to start fresh from the achievements to push cricket in his country forward.

“The two wins in this tournament means a lot to us. Like I said before the tournament – we came here to compete. We have always tried to win every game that we have played for our country. It will always give us a great boost moving forward and push us to do better as well as have great impact on the youngsters who are coming up and wants to take cricket,” said Paras to the media after their historical win yesterday.

“This was the first time we qualified and managed to win two games. So it is a great achievement by itself which we are taking back home. But now the real journey begins. We have to do the home work and start again from the beginning and put the structure right back home and try to produce better results in future,” he added.

The win was Nepal’s first in Twenty20 against Afghanistan which came after had successfully put an all-round effort in the field, including two spectacular catches.

“I think we should forget the catches. The main thing is we have won the match. We are pretty pleased. We have always been trying to push ourselves to do better. We have been playing against Afghanistan for a very long time and they are a very good team and we know that. So to beat them you have to take every chances and score a decent amount of runs and back it up by good bowling. So we managed to do all the three today. So it is like when you do things right there are moments – the key moments and we managed to grab those chances,” said Paras.
