KATHMANDU: Nepal’s national cricket team skipper Paras Khadka, who suffered from intestinal obstruction due to recurrent appendicitis, on Sunday was discharged from the Grande International Hospital where he underwent surgery.
But he is certain to miss the India tour as part of the team’s preparation for the ICC World Cricket League Championship match against Kenya.
Khadka was admitted to the Dhapasi-based hospital on Friday after he suffered from severe abdominal pain.
Khadka was operated through adhesiolysis and keyhole surgery, and an emergency laparoscopic surgery was carried out for his treatment, according to the hospital’s Medical Director, Dr Chakra Raj Pandey.
Though it was a minor surgery and he would recuperate in a few days, Khadka would not be able to fly to India along with the Nepali team as he has been asked to visit the hospital for follow-up check after a week.
Nepali team members are scheduled to fly to New Delhi on February 24 to prepare for the fifth round matches of the championship.
Nepal would host Kenya for two matches of the championship at Tribhuvan University Stadium on March 11 and 13.
Khadka was hospitalised after suffering for intestinal problems in February last year also.
