IPL 2018

Nepal spinner Sandeep Lamichhane says being drafted in the IPL ‘was a dream come true’

IPL 2018 : The 17-year-old leg-spinner does have something special to look forward to in the not too distant future, after all. Last month, he became the first Nepal cricketer to be recruited to the Indian Premier League, when Delhi Daredevils paid US$31,000 (nearly Dh114,000) at auction to secure his services.

“On the first day of the draft, we were in Nepal, travelling to UAE,” Lamichhane said.

“In the second day, we were practicing at the ground, and our team manager came to us. He was full of joy, he was running all over the ground, and he told us: ‘You have been selected. You have been picked by Delhi Daredevils.’

“Everyone came and congratulated me. It was a dream come true for us. I feel like the T20 leagues journey starts now.”
