KATHMANDU: Experienced player and former captain of Nepali cricket team Gyanendra Malla has announced his retirement from playing life.

Organizing a press conference in Kathmandu on Friday, the former Captain of the national team announced his retirement from international cricket.

Malla played cricket for Nepal through the age group as the captain of the national team.

He announced his retirement on the second day after the Nepali cricket team returned home after 15 days of high-performance training following the participation in the ACC Emerging Cup in Sri Lanka.

Gyanendra has been out of the Nepali team’s playing XI for some time now. Although he was in the Nepali team for the World Cup qualifiers in Zimbabwe, he did not get to play any group-stage matches. He played two playoff games in World Cup qualifiers. Malla had not been in the firm for a long time. He scored 7 runs against Ireland and 13 runs against UAE in the World Cup qualifiers.

Previously, Gyanendra was a reliable batsman for the Nepali cricket team. He scored 856 runs in 35 matches played for Nepal. Similarly, he has scored 883 runs in 45 T-20 international matches. Malla scored 1782 runs in 75 List A matches and scored 1267 runs in 68 T20s.

In 2018, Gyanendra made his debut against the Netherlands in the One Day International. In August 2018, he was given the responsibility of the vice-captain of the Nepali team in the selection of the Asia Cup.

A year later, on July 24, 2019, in the match against Malaysia, Paras Khadka, who was the regular captain of Nepal, missed the match due to injury, and Malla took over the responsibility of captaining the Nepali team.

Similarly, he made his debut in first-class cricket against Marylebone Cricket Club on November 6, 2019. He scored his first hundred against Singapore in the ICC World Cricket League Division 3 for Nepal in 2014.

He scored the highest 107 runs against Bhutan in the 13th South Asian Games in South Kathmandu in International T20. He is also the seventh player from Nepal to score a century.

The Former Captain affirmed in the press conference that the future of Nepali cricket is good.
