Worcestershire Rapids Signed Sandeep Lamichhane for Vitality Blast
Nepal’s leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane will be playing his maiden Vitality Blast as Worcestershire Rapids sealed the deal with him. This will be Lamichhane’s first experience of cricket in England. However, he is waiting to play The Hundred later this year.
Lamichhane and Ben Dwarshuis, who has filled the other Rapids overseas spot, are both available for the full duration of the tournament’s group-stage.
In the official website of Worcestershire Rapids, it writes:
The signing of Lamichhane, who is looking forward to his first spell of cricket in England, has delighted Head Coach Alex Gidman; he said, “Sandeep has played in many tournaments and gained a lot of experience in franchise cricket.
“He’s a leg spinner, which is a bit of mystery spin we believe we need in our squad in terms of balance, so we are ecstatic with the signing.
“We believe and trust that we have got an excellent squad of players ourselves, and it’s about adding to that squad, rather than getting players to replace players, and add to the balance of the team, which we think we’ve done well.
“This is his first taste of playing in England, and I’m sure he will do well and have an enjoyable summer with us.
