BBL 2020: Hobart Hurricanes sign Sandeep Lamichhane

Hobart Hurricanes have completed their squad for the upcoming Big Bash League (BBL 2020) season with the signing of Sandeep Lamichhane on Thursday.

The 20-year-old Nepali spinner burst onto the radar of Australian cricket fans when he made his BBL debut for Melbourne Stars two years ago.

In his previous two seasons, he took 26 wickets at an average of 19.80 in 20 matches. Lamichhane, who will join up with the Hurricanes’ squad from January, said he was excited to return to the BBL for another season; this time wearing purple.

“I am humbled and honoured to join the Hobart Hurricanes family for BBL season 10. I have always got a lot of love and support in Australia, and the premium quality of competition in Big Bash is exciting. Can’t wait to play at the Blundstone Arena!” he said in a statement.

“We have seen how Sandeep can change a game with his mystery spin, and he can bowl at any stage of the innings. He’s a proven wicket-taker who will add yet another dimension to our bowling group,” he said.

Lamichhane’s signing means the Hurricanes line-up for the 10th edition is now complete.
