Adam Parore conquers Mount Everest

We all might not know a lot about Adam Parore, but the one who has followed cricket since 90s do know how competitive cricketer he had been for New Zealand. After retirement in 2002, Adam Parore hasn't been very active in cricket and was forgotten. But now, he reappears in the newspaper headlines by successfully exploring the top of Himalayas.

Adam Parore, 40, is one among the proud climbers of Mount Everest, the highest peak ranging to 8848m above the sea level. He climbed it in his second attempt, as the first one was halted due to the bad weather. His achievement was not without difficulties though. According to Parore, he could be dead in the mountains as he ran out of oxygen. He thanked Sherpas to keep him alive in that situation. He would be hoping to collect donation of $100,000 for Make-A-Wish foundation from his climb.

Adam Parore was a frontline wicket-keeper for New Zealand between 1990-2002. He scored 2865 runs in 78 tests with an average of 26.28. He hit 2 centuries and 14 fifties in 128 test innings he played. In 179 ODI matches, he scored 3314 runs at 25.68 average. He got 1 century and 14 half centuries in his name from ODI matches.
