Big Bash League has continued,

Nepalese legspinner Sandeep Lamichhane's stunning impact on the Big Bash League has continued, taking two wickets to help the Melbourne Stars keep the Sydney Sixers to 9-130

Big Bash League has continued,

In his first elite game at Australia's home of spin at the SCG, Lamichhane trapped both Moises Henriques and Tom Curran lbw to finish with figures of 2-18.
His dismissal of Curran may have been fortunate as replays showed it was headed down leg, but the ball to get rid of Henriques was a big turning wrong'un that the Sixers' captain didn't even go close to getting bat to.
The 18-year-old's four-over spell took him to the top of the wicket-taking lists at the early stage of the tournament, having also claimed five scalps in the Stars' opening two losses.
In the hunt for their first win of the summer, quick Jackson Coleman also claimed 3-18, including a peach of a slower ball to clean bowl Daniel Hughes for 20 off the first ball of his spell.
Only Jordan Silk (41no off 37) and Sean Abbott (22 off 16) put up a late fightback for the Sixers, after they failed to pass 50 before the loss of their third wicket for the third straight time this season.
Meanwhile discarded Australian Test batsman Peter Handscomb took just two balls to impress with the gloves on, pulling off a nifty stumping of Jack Edwards in the first over of the innings off Adam Zampa.
