Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane continued to prove his worth in white-ball franchise cricket as he kicked off his T10 campaign with a superb three wicket haul.
Playing for Kerala Knights, Lamichhane picked up 3-17 from his two overs as he helped restrict Pakhtoons to 109-5 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.
That did the job as Knights chased down the target with eight wickets in hand and more than two overs to spare as captain Eoin Morgan hit an unbeaten 46 from 20 balls.
Lamichhane took the important scalps of Andre Fletcher (32) and Colin Ingram (1). He was declared man of the match for his effort.
His performance came 24 hours after Lamichhane was signed by the Lahore Qalandars for PSL 2019.
The teenager had thus become the first Nepalese player to win a PSL contract as he added to his growing list of stints in franchise cricket, which also includes the Indian Premier League, Caribbean Premier League, Bangladesh Premier League, Big Bash League and Global T20 Canada.
