Sandeep with his coach

He used to learn spin bowling skills by himself by watching videos of Shane Warne. Even in an interview, he said, he used to watch his (Warne’s) videos, and then he would practice for hours in the nets.

One day, Nepal’s then cricket coach, Pudu Dassanayake, saw Lamichhane’s bowling in the net and was so amazed by his skill that he called him to a training group of under-19 cricketers. He had barely crossed the age of 15 at that time.

Soon, he became part of the 2016 under-19 world cup team.
