Dassnayake will receive 10,000 USD as a salary per month and will be provided additional Nrs. 200,000 to negotiate for local expenses (Accommodation, Transport, Food, Communications etc. )
The contract however clearly states that Dassnayake first needs to sign a different contract with Cricket Association of Nepal to work as a head coach of Nepal.
