Nepal’s leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has been retained by the Oval Invincible for the inaugural cricket tournament by ECB, “The Hundred”.
The Hundred is a 100 balls tournament which was scheduled for 2020 but was forced to be postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, a modified retention process was drawn up ahead of 2021 and Sandeep Lamichhane was retained by Oval Invincible.
Previuosly, Lamichhane was picked up for 100 thousands pounds. However, the salary bands in the men’s competition have been cut by 20%, meaning Lamichhane will now be paid £80,000.
The Invincible has also retained the players like San Curan, Jason Roy, Sunil Narine, Sam Billings.
A team can have up to three foreign players in their 15-men squad and all those three players can be included in the starting eleven.
Oval Invincible’s squad: Sam Curran, Rory Burns, Jason Roy, Sunil Narine, Sam Billings, Tom Curran, Sandeep Lamichhane, Reece Topley, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Nathan Sowter, Alex Blake.
Head coach: Tom Moody.
