Nepali leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, who tested positive for coronavirus infection on Friday, has been lately admitted to the HAMS hospital after he complained of respiratory complications.
Earlier on Friday, Lamichhane took to Twitter to inform that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19. The cricketer was suffering from severe body pains since last Wednesday and restricted himself to home after his PCR test reports came out positive on Friday.
“Hi Everyone, Greetings to all. It’s my sincere duty to tell you all that I have been tested positive for COVID-19. I had some body aches since Wednesday. But my health is improving a little bit now. If all goes well, I will return to the field again. Keep me in your prayers,” he tweeted.

The news is very unfortunate, especially when Lamichhane was attending a closed training session with other national cricket players for the upcoming cricket tournaments in Australia.
The Cricket Association Nepal (CAN) has started closed session training since Wednesday for as many as 22 players, after they went through the PCR test on Tuesday.
Nepali cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane has signed a contract with Hobart Hurricanes to participate in the upcoming Big Bash League 2020 in Australia. Hurricanes hired Sandeep following the expiry of his contract with Melbourne Stars.
Lamichhane made his debut in the Big Bash League in 2018 on behalf of Melbourne Stars. In the last two seasons, the leg-spin bowler had claimed 26 wickets with an average of 19.80 in 20 matches.
Lamichhane is the latest to have tested positive for coronavirus infection after captain Gyanendra Malla, vice-captain Dipendra Singh Airee and batsman Rohit Paudel.
