Nepal’s young leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane has secured the 217th position in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Player Rankings that the international cricket governing body published on Monday.
The ICC attributed his position to his finishing with four wickets in two recent matches against the Netherlands in the Netherlands.
The matches played on August 1 and 3 were Nepal’s first one day international matches.
Meanwhile, Sompal Kami (229th) and Gyanendra Malla (236th) have been declared leading batsmen for Nepal by the ICC. They had notched a half-century each in the Amstelveen series.
The ICC has clarified that Nepal and the Netherlands will qualify for a full ranking after playing two more matches each.
