काठमाडौं – नेपाली राष्ट्रिय क्रिकेट टिमका चर्चित बलर सन्दीप लामिछानेले एक चोटी फेरी बिदेशी भुमिमा क्रिकेट खेल्ने मौका गुमाएका छन।
केही दिन अघी इंग्ल्यान्डमा आयोजना हुन गयीरहेको ‘द हन्ड्रेड’ क्रिकेट प्रतियोगिता खेल्न पुगेका सन्दीप अब आएर उक्त प्रतियोगितामा खेल्न नपाउने भएका छन।
आफ्नो सामाजिक संजाल फेसबुका पोष्ट गर्दै सन्दीपले भिसाका कारण आफुले ओभल इन्भिन्सिबलको तर्फ बाट खेल्ने मौका गुमाएको कुराको जानकारी गराएका छन।
संदिपले आफ्नो फेसबुकमा लेखेका छन, “I am extremely gutted for missing out on The Hundred. I was so looking forward to play for my team Oval Invincible and followed all the instructions that was given to me by the ECB officials.
Briefly, when I applied for the Tier 5 visa, I was told that one Certificate of Sponsorship would be enough for my gig at Vitality Blast and The Hundred. Due to COVID-19 situation, there was a delay in my visa and Worcestershire pulled out but it was again communicated to me by officials that as long as I come into the UK before July 10, I would be okay as my COS was still active.
I came in the UK by July 9, had no issues whatsoever at the immigration and moved into the government managed quarantine facility to complete my quarantine. On July 18, two days before my quarantine completion, I was told by ECB that may visa is not valid and I have to leave the country ASAP. I have been asking what went wrong but apparently no one at the ECB have the correct answer. I can totally understand that things can go south at anytime, however I at least deserve a clear answer on why my valid visa is not valid anymore.
I left a lot to be the part of this exciting tournament and totally pray and wish the best for all teams out there. I always got love from the lovely people of UK and I would urge ECB to look into the matter so that no one else has to go through this ordeal. I can also feel for my people who were so looking forward to my participation in this amazing tournament. There will be better days ahead.”
