KATHMANDU — Nepali leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has returned back home on Tuesday after playing the Indian Premier League.

Nepali cricket team captain Paras Khadka among others had reached the Tribhuvan International Airport to welcome Lamichhane.

The Nepali young leg-spin sensation was bought by the Delhi Daredevils for the base price of IRs 2,000,000. Sandeep played three matches and took five wickets including a three-wicket-haul against the defending champions Mumbai Indians in Daredevils final clash of the season on Sunday.

The Delhi Daredevils finished at the bottom of the IPL table with 10 points.

Samdeep was fully satisfied with his performance and over all experience he gained in the IPL. Responding to the questions about his delayed debut which Daredevils handed him only after 11 games, he said, “Two leg-spinners, Amit Mishra and Rahul Tewatia, from domestic quota were already there. I got my opportunity when we started to prepare for the next season. It turned out to be good, and I got more opportunities.”

Sandeep also emphasized the need of all stakeholders to step up as it is high time for improvement in Nepali cricket as it is gaining popularity and recognition worldwide.

He said “It doesn’t depend only on me. For making Nepal a cricket force in world stage, all the stakeholders need to do their bit and take responsibilities. We need to start with setting up a proper domestic cricket structure. Everything depends on how good domestic structure we can come up with. We already have good talents, we need more good players.”
