The Indian T20 League has long been a platform for players from little-known cricketing countries to make an impact at a global stage.

While in the past we have seen the likes of Afghanistan's Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman announce themselves at the biggest stage, this season it's a wily leg-spinner from the Himalayan nation, Nepal, Sandeep Lamichhane making the right noises. 

Still only 18, Lamichhane is already one of the most recognisable faces in the cricket circles in Nepal. Apart from significant success in national colours, Lamichhane has also made an impact in T20 leagues around the globe.

His growing international stature is evident by the fact that he's a regular in Team's Delhi line-up this season, having played just three games last year.

Lamichhane admits that the 2019 edition has been a huge learning curve, but while he is happy to do well in T20 leagues, he is ever committed to Nepal cricket. "I'm very thankful to Nepal cricket because I've done really good for Nepal cricket in the past year and that's why people from Delhi, they (picked) me last year," he told ICC.

"From there (it) completely changed my life because I got to play three games, did really good for Delhi. After that, I've not had to look back at my journey.

"Last time I played three games, but this time I've to play a lot of games. That's where I can improve myself, so that if this time I'm getting seven to eight games, I would like to make sure, next Time, I will play all the 14 games."
