The hiring of Nepalese spin sensation Sandeep Lamichhane by Lahore Qalandars was commended as many believed it to be a sharp decision since the wily leggie is on the rise in the franchise based T20 cricket.
Sameen Rana, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Lahore Qalandars, recently opened up about picking Sandeep where he revealed that seeing him doing well in the Indian Premier League (IPL) inspired the move. Furthermore, the nature of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) tracks coupled with Sandeep’s ability with the ball actuated Lahore to hire the 18-year old spinner.
Dissecting the pick, Sameen said, “Lamichhane is an excellent bowler whose quality is known to all. I first saw him in the IPL where he was bowling in tandem with Amit Mishra and Lamichhane outshone him there. So, we’re extremely excited about him as other franchises also had their eyes on him.”
