Paras Khadka wrote his name into the annals of Nepal cricket's history as he became the country's first batsman to score a One Day International (ODI) century on Monday. Khadka scored 115 in the series decider game against UAE at the ICC Academy in Dubai to take his side across the finishing line with 5.2 overs left in the game. The victory also helped Nepal clinched their maiden ODI series win.

His knock, which included 15 fours and one six, helped his side chase the target of 255 set by UAE in the third ODI on Monday.
