She led Nepal in their first-ever international tournament in the Asian Cricket Council women’s tournament at Johor in Malaysia where they lost to Bangladesh in the final. The Nepal government awarded NPR 10,000 (US$ 153) to each of the 14 players and the coach for their achievement.

Thapa had a successful tournament as a bowler and won the Bowler-of-the-tournament award for topping the wickets table with 12 dismissals at 2.75.
