In the second day of the league, Delhi Capitals is taking on Kings XI Punjab. Nepal’s leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane is playing his third consecutive season from Delhi.
Alike previous seasons, Lamichhane will have to give a tough fight to make his place in the starting eleven of the team. With the likes of Amit Mishra, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axsar Patel in spin attack, Lamichhane will have to give a tough fight.
Nevertheless, in a pre match briefing, the popular cricketing news portas ESPN Cricinfo has included Sandeep Lamichhane in its likely XI of Delhi Capitals.
