Kathmandu, July 20

Nepali leg-spinner Lamichhane will miss the first few games of The Hundred, professional cricket franchise 100-ball cricket tournament, due to start July 21.

Due to visa issues, there is a chance he might not be able to play in the tournament altogether. Lamichhane, who went to England on a Tier-5 visa might not be able to play through that visa, according to ESPN Cricinfo.

Lamichhane was bought by Ovals Invincibles for GBP 60,000. The club will play their first game against the Manchester Originals on Thursday.

Lamichhane reached London on July 8 and has already severed the 10- mandatory quarantine, but with his visa not sorted out, his appearance in the first few games has been ruled out. If he does get to play in the remainder of the tournament is still a mystery.
