Kathmandu, January 6
Nepali cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane has claimed two wickets for his side Sylhet Sixers in his Bangladesh Premier League debut against the Comilla Victorians on Sunday.
Lamichhane conceded 16 runs in the four overs taking two crucial wickets and bowling 12 dot balls to give his team the upper hand. His first victim was Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik, who was caught at mid-wicket trying to take the spinner on.
In the next over, he claimed the wicket of Bangladeshi cricketer Anamul Haque who was a victim of Lamichhane’s disguised googly. Haque tried to slog sweep Lamichhane but missed it completely losing his stumps in the process.
However, Lamichhane’s impressive work with the ball was in vain as his side lost to the Victorians by four wickets.
The star spinner was signed by the Sixers after his impressive runs in various T20 competitions in the world. He has joined the Sixers after impressing the Big Bash League in the past month.
Lamichhane will be back in Australia to play the Big Bash League after the Bangladeshi league draws to a close in the first week of February.
