KATHMANDU, Nov 24: Sandeep Lamichhane picked up a wicket in lost cause against Sindhis in Kerala Knights second match of the T10 cricket league played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah on Thursday.
The 18-year-old removed New Zealand’s Anton Devcich for 49 runs but the damage was done as Sindhis romped to commanding nine wickets against the defending champions.
It was too late when Lamichhane was introduced in attack but he removed the left-handed batsman from New Zealand who smashed four sixes and fours each during his 20-ball stay opening the batting for Sindhis. Skipper Shane Watson completed an unbeaten 50 from 24 deliveries which included the same number of boundaries as Devcich before achieving the target of 104 runs for the loss of wicket in the 7.4 overs. Lamichhane was the only wicket-taker for Knights conceding 14 runs from his two-over spell.
Earlier, former Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Pravin Tambe picked up first five-wicket-haul of T10 cricket in first eight legal deliveries he bowled in the match which included the second hat-trick of second season of T10 league.
The first was taken by Aamer Yamin earlier on the day.
Wayne Parnell smashed seven fours and four sixes during his 24-ball 59 runs as Knights scored a respectable total of 103 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 10 overs.
