IPL 2020: Delhi Capitals Share Video Of Sandeep Lamichhane Bowling Pace, Spinner Reacts
Delhi Capitals leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane came off a long run-up and Capitals spoke of a "Parallel Universe" where spinners bowl fast.
Sandeep Lamichhane is known for his wily leg-spin
In a video shared by Delhi Capitals, he can be seen trying fast bowling
He responded to the video with a teasing comment
Sandeep Lamichhane, the young Nepalese sensation, has made waves in T20 leagues across the world for his loopy leg-breaks. He is part of a very potent spin attack in the Delhi Capitals' armoury this season, along with the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Amit Mishra and Axar Patel. However, what is an unlikely sight is the 20-year-old displaying some quality pace bowling. Sharing a video of Lamichhane trying out a seamer in the nets, Delhi Capitals wrote: "There's a lot happening in the DC Parallel Universe."
Lamichhane responded with a cheeky tweet of his own.
"Lol, that was 140 km/h I guess," he wrote.

This is not the first video where a Delhi Capitals player has been seen doing something out of the box. They had earlier tweeted a video of Prithvi Shaw trying out some leg-spin.
Maybe taking a cue from the young Indian opener, DC's South African pace duo Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje were seen trying their hand at leg-breaks as well in another video shared by the Delhi-based franchise.
Delhi Capitals got their IPL 2020 campaign off to a winning start, beating Kings XI Punjab in the Super Over after a dramatic match ended in a tie.
Marcus Stoinis starred for DC, scoring a quick-fire half-century and then bowling three dot balls at the end of KXIP's innings - taking two wickets in the process - to stop them from clinching the match.
Rabada was the star in the Super Over, as he dismissed KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran off consecutive deliveries to restrict them to just two runs and setting up an easy victory in the end for the Capitals.
Delhi Capitals will take on Chennai Super Kings in their next match on Friday at the Dubai International Stadium.
