Paras Khadka became Nepal's first one-day centurion as he pulled off a magnificent hundred against UAE and led his team towards their first ever bilateral ODI series triumph in International cricket. 

The skipper helped his side chase down the 255-run target in 44.4 overs with a solid knock of 115 that included 15 fours and one six. 

It was a performance for the ages as the passionate associate cricket nation scripted one of its finest wins so far at the ICC Academy ground in Dubai. 

 

 

Enormity of Khadka's knock can be understood by the fact that next highest run-getter in the batting line-up was Gyanendra Malla with just 31 runs. 

Earlier on Monday, January 28, UAE found themselves struggling at  47/4 in the 21st over before CP Rizwan (45), Shaiman Anwar (87) and Mohammad Boota (59) batted valiantly to push their team past the 250-run mark.
