Meanwhile, Nepali legendary cricketer Paras Khadka made his mark once again when he hammered as many as four sixes off the former world No. 1 spinner Saeed Ajmal, in the 2X Cricket USA Cup 2016 match. In the a match between Nepal Rhinos versus Houston Sparks, the right-handed Khadka was severe on the Pakistani cricketer who has been away from the international circuit, ever since the questions on his bowling action surfaced. It has been two years since Ajmal played Test cricket for Pakistan, as his last appearance in a format where he dominated batsmen from around the world was in 2014 against Sri Lanka at Colombo.

 

 

The last international game which Ajmal played for Pakistan was on their last tour of Bangladesh. Ajmal played the second ODI of the game and since then he has been away from the team. In this game of the 2X Cricket USA Cup 2016 match, Nepali Rhinos were coming off a victory over Florida Underdogs, and Houston Sparks surprised the UAE Falcons to enter the final of the tournament.
