Former Australian pace bowler, Brett Lee has been appointed as the mentor for Nepal T20 League. Lee landed in Nepal on Thursday for the special program. Lee was unveiled as the mentor, amidst a program in Kathmandu. Nepal T20 League also launched its official mobile application. Ssixer will broadcast all the matches of Nepal’s official franchise league and is also announced as its global streaming partner. The 45 years old expressed his happiness to be part of Nepal’s mega event. “I know about Nepal as a cricketing nation. Nepal needs exposure and it will grow up slowly. More exposure will develop young cricketers and will also help female cricketers”, Lee added. Lee arrived in Kathmandu on Thursday and is leaving today itself, but he will continue mentoring the teams virtually.
He was recognised as one of the fastest and most intense bowler during his time, picking up 718 wickets across the formats.
The first edition of Nepal T20 is all set to take place from 24th September to 22nd October in Kathmandu. Kathmandu Capitals, Lumbini All-stars, Biratnagar Super Kings, Pokhara Avengers, Far Western United, and Janakpur Royals will compete in the league.
