Rohit Paudel

Rohit Kumar Paudel becomes fourth youngest ODI debutant

Nepal news

It has been a historic series for Nepal against the Netherlands, but for one individual, it meant a little bit more.

At 15 years and 335 days, Rohit Kumar Paudel became the fourth youngest to play in the format when he was named in the Nepal XI on Friday, 3 August.

Pakistan's Hasan Raza remains the youngest to play an ODI, having made his debut against Zimbabwe in 1996 aged just 14 years and 233 days. 

More recently in 2013, Kenya's Gurdeep Singh became the second-youngest to make his ODI debut, aged 15 years and 258 days, when he fronted up against Afghanistan.

Canada's Nitish Kumar is third on the list – he was 15 years and 273 days when he played Afghanistan in Sharjah in 2010. 

Aaqib Javed of Pakistan, aged 16 years and 127 days when he played the Windies at Adelaide in 1988, completes the top five.
