The Cricket Association of Nepal has confirmed that despite being denied a visa twice for the USA, Sandeep Lamichhane is currently in the Caribbean to participate in the T20 World Cup 2024. Nepal’s cricket board stated, “Lamichhane was denied a US visa twice, which prevented him from participating in the initial stages of the T20 World Cup. However, the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has confirmed that he is now in the Caribbean and will play in Nepal’s two league stage games in the West Indies.” Nepal, who lost their first group game, is scheduled to face South Africa and Bangladesh on 15 and 17 June at the Arnos Vale stadium in St. Vincent.

“Namaste. Hello from West Indies!”

“First of all I would like to thank Government of Nepal, Foreign Ministry, Sports Ministry, National Sports Council(NSC), and Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) for their support to help me get the US visa but unfortunately it did not work out this time.”

“But now through all of that aside, I am now joining the National Team for the last two matches in the West Indies and looking forward to fulfilling my dreams and the dream of all cricket lovers.”

“I extend my gratitude to our President Chatur Bahadur Chand Sir, Secretary and my dear brother Paras Khadka dai, my lawyer Saroj K Ghimire dai, Binod Das Dai, Prabal Gautam dai & beloved Balkrishna Lamichhane dai for their extraordinary dedicated effort to make my journey possible in co-ordination with ICC and all related official networks possible for me to participate in this T20 World Cup.”

“I am disheartened to see the deliberate image-tarnishing of the important figures like Chatur Sir and Paras Dai, who made my comeback possible. Please don’t follow all the false propaganda surrounding my visa issues that people are using to tarnish CAN and Nepal Cricket’s image.”

“To all our cricket fans and people back home everywhere, who prayed for me, I will forever be grateful for your blessings. Let us celebrate Nepal cricket which is playing the world cup after 10 years. We will need your positive support and blessings more than ever. Jai Nepal,”

said Lamichhane.
