Sandeep Lamichhane, Nepal's leg spinner, cannot travel abroad.

Nepal’s 15-man roster for the Cricket World Cup League 2 tri-series in the UAE, starting February 27, 2023, does not include Sandeep Lamichhane.

Sandeep Lamichhane allegedly sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl in a Kathmandu hotel room. Lamichhane, who is on anticipatory bail, requested permission from the highest court to play cricket abroad, but it was denied.

Supreme Court rejects Sandeep Lamichhane’s appeal.
The Supreme Court ruled against the 22-year-old. The heinousness of Lamichhane’s crime necessitated a final hearing, according to Judge Ishwor Prasad Khatiwada’s single bench.
Khatiwada’s bench ordered a division bench to hear Lamichhane and the Attorney General’s Office applications. Bimal Poudel, Supreme Court spokeswoman, said the final hearing will begin on Sunday, February 26, 2023.

The Attorney General has appealed the Supreme Court’s ruling. The division bench has not decided whether Lamichhane can go overseas or should be detained during the investigation.

Nepal will play in the UAE-Papua New Guinea-Nepal CWC League 2 tri-series. Lamichhane played another CWC League 2 tri-series in Nepal the week before. Nepal, Scotland, and Namibia.

Lamichhhane’s bowling helped Nepal win that match. The leg spinner took thirteen wickets. Nepal won the series 4–0.

Fans and opponents disliked Lamichhane’s participation in that series. Scottish players declined to shake hands with the leg spinner. During the tri-series, Namibian players just wanted to fist bump Nepali cricketers.
