Another two first-class match were held there during the 2005 Intercontinental Cup when Nepal hosted Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.
These were the first first-class matches to be held anywhere in Nepal. The ground has since hosted a number of international competitions, including the 2010 ICC World Cricket League Division Five and 2015-17 ICC World Cricket League Championship.
