After being able to participate in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane has expressed happiness and thanked everyone who created the environment for this opportunity.

Sandeep, who was deprived of playing in the World Cup on the ground of not getting a US visa, was able to participate in the World Cup in the West Indies. He flew to West Indies on Sunday night.

Taking to social media on Monday morning, Sandeep thanked everyone saying that this was possible due to the efforts of the officials including Chatur Bahadur Chand, the president of the Nepal Cricket Association (CAN), and the lawyers who argued for acquittal in the rape case.

"I would like to thank our president Chutar Badhaur Chand, secretary and my dear brother Paras Khadka, lawyer Saroj K Ghimire, Binod Das dai, Prabal Gautam and dear brother Balkrishna Lamichhane for their extraordinary and dedicated efforts to make my journey possible in coordination with ICC," Sandeep wrote on Facebook.

Meanwhile, he mentioned that he was disheartened by the negative comments aimed at tarnishing the image of personalities like president Chatur and secretary Paras, dismissing allegations that they did not play a positive role for him.

It was alleged that the US Embassy in Nepal did not grant him a visa even despite applying twice partly for failure of the CAN president Chand and secretary Paras to take initiation.

He wrote, "Please don't believe such a false propaganda about my visa application, which people are using to tarnish the image of CAN and the Nepali cricket."

Stating that he has joined the Nepali team for the last two matches in the West Indies, he vowed that he would do his best to fulfill the dreams of all Nepali cricket lovers.
