Nepalese leg spinner Sandeep Lamcihhane has flown to Pakistan to join the ongoing sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League. Rashid Khan who left Lahore Qalandars for his national duty against Zimbabwe will be replaced by Lamichhane for the rest of the season. He left Kathmandu at 11:00 AM (NST) via a flight on Qatar Airways.
“We are seeing if we can get other spinners like Rashid. His exit has affected our bowling. We hope to find a replacement,” Sohail Akhtar, the Qalandars Captain reflected on Rashid’s replacement on Friday.
Sandeep Lamichhane was seen as the potential replacement of Rashid Khan after his exit from the tournament. With his addition, there will be two Associate cricketers playing in the league, the other being Ali Khan from the USA. Ali Khan is representing Islamabad United.
