Nepal’s leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has been voted the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for September 2021.
Sandeep beat USA’s Jaskaran Malhotra and Bangladesh’s left-arm orthodox Nasum Ahmed to win the award.
Lamichhane, 21, was outstanding during the Oman tour where he played One-day Internationals against host Oman, USA, and Papua New Guinea.
He was the pick of the bowlers for Nepal against PNG. In two bilateral matches, Sandeep took 4-35 and 6-11.
Similarly, during the ICC World Cup Super League 2, on the same tour, he played six ODIs and bagged 18 wickets at an average of 7.37 and an impressive economy rate of 3.17.
Sandeep also put on a great show to register a 4/18 match-winning figure, guiding Nepal to a historical victory against Oman in ODI.
“Sandeep is a great competitor with a unique skill and it’s great to see him dominating with the ball like he did last month in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 for Oman,” JP Duminy, a member of the ICC Voting Academy for September said.
