Talking about the secret behind his jersey number, Sandeep revealed:

“I cannot take the number 25 from my seniors, as the birth date of my deceased Nephew falls on January, i.e. 1, so I took the number for the jersey, and we always want to be number one for which I took the number.”    

Sandeep also featured in the Nepal squad which played in the World Cup qualifiers. The team did manage to get ODI status despite failing to qualify for the tournament.
