Sushil Chaugai, Cricketer – Nepal

Somesh Verma

To those who watched Nepali Cricket in 80s and early 90s, Sushil Chaugai was an allrounder who batted with gumption and bowled with guile. His biggest weapon being swing in conditions that may not favor seam bowling. Yet, Chaugai is better known for his fiery temper with the cricketers whom he managed, especially for Kalaiya Cricket Club in Nepal. Strange, none of his wards complain for his temper. They say Chaugai was instrumental in making them better cricketers and later helped them play for the country (at least some of them).

Chaugai lives for two Cs – Cricket and Cinema, and loves them with his core. He is in US now, with his son Kanishka Chaugai – who many believe could have been the next big thing for Nepali Cricket in early 2000s. We caught up with senior Chaugai, who in turn opened his heart for us.
