Pradeep Singh Airee (Nepali: प्रदिप सिंह ऐरी) (born 1 September 1992) is a Nepalese cricketer. Airee is a right-handed batsman and an occasional wicket-keeper, who bowls right-arm medium pace. He made his debut for Nepal against Argentina in August 2010.
Airee was selected in Nepal's fourteen man squad for the 2010 World Cricket League Division Four, during which he made his debut for Nepal against Argentina. He made three further appearances in the competition, against the United States, the Cayman Islands and Tanzania. He later played for Nepal Under-19s in the 2011 Under-19 World Cup Qualifier, making nine appearances during the qualifier, in which Nepal Under-19s gained qualification to the 2012 Under-19 World Cup.
Further appearances for Nepal followed in the 2011 ACC Twenty20 Cup, before Airee was selected as part of Nepal's fourteen man squad for the 2012 World Twenty20 Qualifier in the United Arab Emirates, making his Twenty20 debut during the tournament against Hong Kong. He made eight further appearances during the tournament, with his final appearance coming against Papua New Guinea. He scored 165 runs at an average of 20.62 in his nine matches, with a high score of 65 not out. This was his only half century score in the tournament and came against Denmark. Nepal finished the tournament in seventh place, therefore failing to qualify for the 2012 World Twenty20.
Later in 2012, he was selected as part of the Nepal Under-19 squad for the Under-19 World Cup in Australia, making six Youth One Day International appearances during the tournament. In August 2012, he was selected in Nepal's fourteen man squad for the World Cricket League Division Four in Malaysia.
