Sandeep Lamichhane to play Afghan's first premier league cricket

Sep 11, 2018 | CN Staff |
Nepal's teen leg spin prodigy Sandeep Lamichhane has added another chapter in his globetrotting cricket career after the 17-year old was picked up in the Afghanistan Premier League (APL). 

APL is Afghanistan's first ever Twenty20 professional league that will include top notch cricketers from around the world. It will be held at the United Arab Emirates in October. 

Sandeep was bought by Nangarhar franchise and the leggie will get $15,000 for this season. This will be Sandeep's fourth professional Twenty20 league in his fairytale journey to world cricket that began with an Indian Premier League jackpot where he played for Delhi Daredevils.

After the IPL stint, where he played three matches for Daredevils picking up four wickets, Sandeep played in the Global Twenty20 Challenge in Canada that was followed by a short stint with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League.

However, there was sad news for Nepali fans at the other hand as skipper Paras Khadka and fast bowling allrounder Sompal Kami went unsold. The Nepali trio was named in the draft in ICC Associates category. Apart from Nepal, players from Hong Kong, Oman, United Arab Emirates and Canada were also listed in this category.
