Cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane is going to leave for China today for the Asian Games. The Nepali cricket team has already reached China on Sunda. Nepal will be locking horns against Mongolia on Wednesday.
Sagar Dhakal, on the other hand, will replace spinner Lalit Narayan Rajbanshi. Lalit will miss the Asian Games due to an injury he suffered while fielding in a practice match at the TU Cricket Ground. Sagar was also unable to head to China with the team due to visa issues.
A day earlier, Sandeep had said that he is not mentally prepared to play the game. After newly elected President Chatur Bahadur Chand and Secretary Paras Khadka met Sandeep, he is now heading to China for the Asian Games.
The two players will depart for China via 12 noon flight.
