Sandeep is highly rated by former Australian skipper Michael Clarke and even trained under him in Australia. Clarke had recognised ‘Sandeep’s outstanding potential’ during his short stint as a player and mentor in Hong Kong earlier this year.
Sandeep was the second-highest wicket-taker at the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh in 2016, with 14 wickets and a best of 5 for 27 against Ireland.Follow @gorkhapost
