Sandeep Says

“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 Capitals, they [picked] me last year….From there [it] completely changed my life because I got to play three games, did really good for Delhi Daredevils [as Delhi were known last year]. 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.”

ICC Commends Sandeep

Citing Sandeep’s statement “IPL has changed my life”, ICC said, “His growing international stature is evident by the fact that he’s a regular in the Delhi Capitals line-up this season, having played just three games last year. He is also repaying the faith with match-winning performances.”
