With only 25 days left for the league, Raman Shiwakoti said they are seeking help from the both countries for the travel. Shiwakoti has been helping the leg spinner in the management.

In order to be eligible to play in the league, Lamichhane must fly to the host country within the third week of Shrawan. With all the aviation service shutted, it is creating problem for Lamichhane.

According to Shiwakoti, Jamaica Tallawahs are making efforts from their side. However, Nepal government is silent about the issue.

Lamichhane hasd played his debut CPL from St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in 2018 where he grabbed 7 wickets. Last year, he played from Barbados Tridents and picked up 8 wickets.
