Nepali leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane's chances of playing in the upcoming edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) have become uncertain and difficult.
The CPL is being held from September 2 to 25 (August 18-September 10). But the Nepali government has suspended international flights until September 1 due to the coronavirus epidemic. According to ICC rules, any player has to stay in quarantine for 14 days Due to this, the possibility of Sandeep playing in CPL is becoming difficult. Video analyst of the Nepali cricket team Raman Siwakoti, who has been watching Sandeep's management, also says that Sandeep's journey has been difficult.
'Sandeep has to reach there within the third week of July. The flight is not open. That is the problem. So far we are trying to reconcile the same.  After opening on September 1, you have to stay in quarantine for 14 days. Therefore, the possibility of going after September 1 is very low ', Raman told our sports.
'You have to stay there for 14 days. Because of that, we have a problem. They are taking initiative with the government from there. So far, the government has not taken any initiative. Not even taking a ship alone. So there is a problem of reconciliation ', he said.
In the draft held last July, Sandeep was contracted by Jamaica Talawaj for more than 10 million Nepali rupees. Sandeep's team includes star players like Andre Russell, Carlos Braithwaite, Tarbez Shamsi, and Ocean Thomas in Jamaica. There will be a total of 33 games in the CPL with two semi-finals and one final. All the games will be played in the stadium without supporters.
Sandeep is preparing to play CPL for the third time. Sandeep had previously played for the St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the 2018 CPL. When he signed for St. Kitts in the first season, Sandeep received 5,000. In the first season, he played 5 games and took 7 wickets.
In the second season, Sandeep, who is contracted to Barbados Tridents, played six games. He took a total of 8 wickets. Sandeep left the national team in the middle of the season after a fight, but Tridents won the title. In the second season, Barbados selected him in the fifth round and paid him 70,000 US dollars. But Sandeep did not get 100 percent of the contract amount as he was not available for the entire season.
