Sandeep Lamichhane is returning to the Big Bash League with Melbourne Stars! The teenage leg-spin sensation will be leading the Stars challenge again after a successful campaign last season. The 19-year-old has made a big name for himself already starring in the IPL with Delhi Capitals and playing for Barbados Tridents in the Caribbean Premier League T20. Melbourne list manager Trent Woodhill said, “We’re really excited to have Sandeep back at the Stars. He’s a young, energetic and talented leg-spinner. To secure his signature for the entire Big Bash season is a great testament to the level of competition. He was definitely a fan favourite last season so it’s great that fans will have the opportunity to come and watch someone so exciting for the entire Big Bash campaign.”
