But playing in higher level put them in pressure and fails to play their natural game.As a result they are dropped without contributing anything to the team.
Here are 3 most hyped Nepali players who failed in international cricket:
1. Pawan Sarraf
Pawan sarraf, a remarkable name in Nepal U-19 team burst into the international as a young gun of Nepal cricket. A talented all-rounder, Pawan performed excellent in both domestic and youth tournaments which led him to get picked for national side in 2019.
