Sandeep Lamichhane Becomes First Nepal Player To Indian league

Sandeep Lamichhane became the first Nepali cricketer to feature in Indian Premier League after Delhi Daredevils picked the leg-spinner in the IPL auction in Bengaluru today.

Delhi Daredevils proposed Lamichhane’s name in the auction and as no other team showed interest in buying the leggie — who has been compared to Australian great Shane Warne — he was sold to the club for the base amount of two million Indian rupees.
Delhi Daredevils confirmed the news through Twitter. “The first Nepali player in the history of the Vivo IPL! It gives us great pleasure to welcome the 17-year-old leg-spinner @IamSandeep25 into the #DDSquad!” The club later posted another Tweet: “17-year-old sensation with a knack for picking up wickets, @IamSandeep25 will be vying to do his country proud come the Vivo IPL season!” Lamichhane replied saying: “Journey begins now.”

I’ll try my best to do well which could open the gates for other players in future – Sandeep Lamichhane
