Sandeep's bounces back in Canada with economical figures

Jul 03, 2018 | Saleena Shrestha |
Sandeep Lamichhane, hammered for 57 runs in four overs against West Indies B in his first match of the Global Twenty20 Canada, made a decent comeback returning the figures of 1-19 in four overs against Vancouver Knights in King City on Monday.
The Nepali leg spinner also kept one maiden but his effort was not yet enough for Sandeep's Montreal Tigers who went on to lose the match by 18 runs. It was third consecutive defeated for Tigers who are now left with a Herculean task to reach the the playoffs. 
Sandeep came in to bowl the sixth over and took the wicket of Chadwick Walton in the second ball. He was quite impressive in that over keeping a wicket-maiden. He ended up as the best bowler in the match with an economy of 4.75. 
Electing to field first, Montreals stopped Knights at 166-6 in 20 overs. Rassie van der Dussen top scored for the team with 83 off just 56 balls, while Babar Hayat(20) and Evin Lewis(16) were next best contributors. 
Skipper Malinga took 3-41 and PM Siddle took two wickets from their respective four overs for Montreals.
Chasing 167-run target, Montreals were bundled out for 148 in 19.4 overs. George Herrick Worker (43 off 33) and Moises Henriques (40 off 34) were the topscores for the team but rest of the batsmen couldnot build on to it. 
Tim Southee and Saad Bin Zafar took three wickets each from their respective four-over spells. Sheldon Cottrell took two and Fawad Ahmed and Andre Russell had one scalp each for Vancouver.
Montreals will now compete against Edmonton on Wednesday.
