Hobart Hurricanes retain Sandeep Lamichhane for upcoming BBL season

Ahead of the 2021-22 BBL season, the Hobart Hurricanes have retained the services of Nepal leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane

Hobart Hurricanes have managed to retain the services of Nepal leg-spinner, Sandeep Lamichhane for the upcoming season of the Big Bash League. Last season, the leg-spinner picked up eight wickets for the franchise and was an integral part of the Hurricanes’ setup for the first eight games. 

Earlier this year, the leg-spinner was scheduled to be part of England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)’s brain-child The Hundred but issues with the visa prevented him from participating in the competition.

"I am looking forward to returning to Australia and playing with the Hurricanes again this year. 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," Lamichhane said in a statement. 

However, all-rounder James Faulkner, who has been a regular in the setup parted way with the Hurricane. On the other hand, the franchise have signed all-rounder Josh Kann for the season. 

"It's a tough thing, we were very keen to keep James on the Hurricanes' list this year, but we've played a lot of cricket without him over the past two years," Hurricanes head coach Adam Griffith told the Cricket Australia.

"Our bowling group has done a really good job over the last three years with the locals we've been able to build up. We've obviously got Riley Meredith and Nathan Ellis who were with the Australian team, and Scott Boland was our player of the year last year and is just a seasoned campaigner.

"That's not to say Jimmy hasn't played a role in that over the last few years. But we're looking forward with the list we have and we know that it will be a list we're really happy with, and we're looking forward to starting the season."
