Sandeep Lamichhane returns to Nepal’s domestic cricket as a captain of Bagmati Province. Lamichhane has been announced as the Bagmati Province’s captain for the KP Oli T20 Tournament.
On Tuesday, Bagmati Province revealed their 14-player squad for the tournament, with Lamichhane leading the team. Notably, Pratish GC, a consistent member of the Nepal national team, is part of the squad, alongside players such as Rit Gautam, Ishan Pandey, and Ram Naresh Giri.
