Nepalese leg-spinner, Sandeep Lamichhane, will return to the Hobart Hurricanes for a second consecutive season of the Big Bash League.

Lamichhane, 21, went on to take eight wickets in eight matches, last year, finishing with best figures of 2-24.

“I am looking forward to returning to Australia and playing with the Hurricanes again this year,” Lamichhane said. “I really enjoyed my time with the Hurricanes last season, so I’m excited that I will be there for the whole tournament this year” he further added.

Sandeep had so far played only eight games in 2021 in international franchise cricket and that was for Hurricanes in January. He has taken 34 wickets across three seasons in BBL, 26 wickets with the Melbourne Stars.

Lamichhane is the Hurricane’s first international player signing for KFC BBL|11. He joins Scott Boland, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Peter Handscomb, Caleb Jewell, Josh Kann, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, Joel Paris, Wil Parker, D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade, and Mac Wright as players currently contracted.
