"But whenever I get the opportunity to play in such leagues, I like to keep things simple and I know that I have to work hard because I don t get these facilities in Nepal. So whenever I have the chance to play here in IPL and in other leagues, I only focus on performing to the best of my abilities." <p></p> <p></p>Lamichhane made his IPL debut last year when he became the first Nepalese player to get a contract in the cash-rich league. <p></p> <p></p>Recalling his maiden foray in India, he said, "Last year was a very special year for me as I got the chance to play in the biggest cricket league in the world. IPL 2018 will always be a special memory for me in my career, and I believe that it is the perfect platform for players like me who come from the non-Test playing nations," he said. <p></p> <p></p>IPL also gave Lamichhane the chance to meet and learn from his idol Shane Warne whom he credits for giving a huge boost to his cricketing career. I have always admired and idolised Shane Warne the most, and fortunately for me, IPL has given me the chance to meet him. I met him last season where he gave me certain tips to improve my bowling, which also gave me a huge boost in my career. However, I believe, the most important advice that he gave me was to make sure that I bowl with a big and brave heart," he said.
