Playing Role



Ganesh Shahi Thakuri represented Nepal as a wicketkeeper-batsman in the ICC Trophy and ACC Trophy and was regarded as one of the best keepers outside mainstream cricket. “Shahi was the best Nepali wicketkeeper I have seen,” said former national captain Pawan Agrawal. “We played together in the national side under each other’s captainship. He was good behind the wickets. As a captain, I used to rest faith in him for the duty behind the wicket. He was equally useful with the bat. More importantly, he was a team-player and better human being.” He died after a long illness at the age of 40.
