Kathmandu, December 21
Nepali cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane has claimed two wickets for his side Melbourne Stars in his Big Bash League debut against the Sydney Thunders on Friday.
Sandeep conceded 32 runs in the four overs he bowled in tandem with fellow leg-spinner Adam Zampa. Both the wickets came in the same over for the Nepali leggie.
Lamichhane’s first victim was the former Aussie all-rounder Shane Watson who mistimed a shot straight to long on. In the same over, he also claimed the wicket of another former Aussie international Callum Ferguson. Lamichhane caught him off his own bowl.
The star spinner was signed by the Stars after his impressing runs in the Indian Premier League and Caribbean Premier League. According to the team, Lamichhane will be available for around half way through the tournament, as he has already signed up for Bangladesh Premier League.
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.
