    The cricket association said on Monday that Sandeep Lamichhane, a controversial player from Nepal, will be joining their T20 World Cup squad in the West Indies. Lamichhane missed matches in the United States due to his visa being denied. 

    In a statement, organization secretary Paras Khadka said, “Nepali player Sandeep Lamichhane will depart for the West Indies for the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup and join the Nepali national cricket team.”

    The West Indies and the United States share co-hosting duties for the T20 World Cup.

    Former captain Lamichhane, whose eight-year rape sentence was overturned on appeal, was the player Nepal had first intended to choose, but after vigorous lobbying, his US visa was repeatedly denied.
