Sandeep’s talent surprises Australian mentors; hopes for “lot of shouting” from Nepalese crowd
"Sandeep Lamichhane has not only proven to be a good-humoured teammate but has also exceeded all expectations of hismentors at the premier grade club. Yet, he has been in the country for only four full days!", The secretary of Western Suburbs District Cricket Club said.
“He is a fine young man,” said a very impressed Rick Wayde who is in charge of managing the Nepalese cricketer’s debut into the 121-year-old home club of former Australia captain Michael Clarke. Mr Wayde told that since he arrived last Monday, the U-19 World Cup star has attended few practice sessions during which the coach and other officials of the club got “a pleasant surprise” as he demonstrated his brilliant cricketing skills.
Today is a history in the making so far as the cricketing journey of Mr Lamichhane is concerned. He is now part of the 2016-17 Sydney Premier Cricket season which will rock into action from today with Western Suburbs taking on Mosman in a One Day round of fifty overs. The first game of the season will be held at the Allan Border Oval in Mosman.
“To all brothers and sisters of the Nepalese community in Australia, thank you so very much for your support so far. You have been a tremendous support. And tomorrow is a very important game for me. Please be there for me. I look forward to seeing you all in the Oval tomorrow,” the soft-spoken leg-spinner urged members of the Nepalese diaspora in Sydney yesterday.
