Rape case against Sandeep Lamichhane before T20 World Cup 2024, then visa denied twice, now ready to play Nepal vs Sri Lanka match

T20 World Cup 2024: Many associate members of ICC are participating in the 9th edition of T20 World Cup. One of these names is Nepal, but this team was playing without its most important player till now. The name of this important player is Sandeep Lamichhane, who has been the captain of Nepal. Recently news came that after visa appeals were rejected twice, Sandeep will finally join Nepal's squad in the World Cup being played in USA. But his journey to reach USA has been very interesting.

Sandeep Lamichhane was in jail

Actually, Sandeep Lamichhane was in jail till a few months before the T20 World Cup 2024. He was facing a case of raping a woman in Kathmandu, in which he was sentenced to 8 years. Apart from this, he was also fined several lakh rupees, yet Sandeep kept rejecting these allegations, so the case kept moving forward. Finally, after a long process, on 15 May 2024, the Pathan High Court of Nepal acquitted Sandeep Lamichhane of all charges. Sandeep Lamichhane was suspended by the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) due to rape allegations against him. But after being acquitted, CAN lifted the suspension from him. Since the T20 World Cup was approaching, speculations were being made that Sandeep would be included in the World Cup squad.

Protest in support of Sandeep

In fact, Nepal had already announced a squad of 14 players for the T20 World Cup 2024 after taking permission from the ICC as one spot was left for Sandeep Lamichhane. His troubles were not going to end as the USA Embassy rejected Sandeep's visa appeal not once but twice. Since Sandeep emerged as one of the main players of Nepal, people came out on the streets in support of Sandeep when he was not given a visa.

Now we can play match against Sri Lanka

Finally, after the tireless efforts of the Cricket Association of Nepal, Sandeep Lamichhane has gone to the USA. Nepal has so far played one match in the T20 World Cup 2024, in which it had to face defeat by 6 wickets at the hands of the Netherlands. Nepal will play its next match against Sri Lanka on June 12 at 5 am Indian time. There are high chances that Sandeep Lamichhane can be seen playing in this match.
