After the win, Nepal’s Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ invited Nepal’s cricket team captain Rohit Paudel’s side to his official residence in Kathmandu and announced Rs. 3,00,000 cash price to each player. U-19 player Gulshan Jha became the hero of his country as he smashed an unbeaten 50 runs knock with some much needed boundaries.
After win captain Rohit Paudel said, “It was gret to get such support from the fans. That was very motivating for the team. I am very happy with the result.
