The Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya has been signed by Warwickshire for the Royal London Cup campaign

Krunal Pandya, the Indian all-rounder has been signed with the Warwickshire County Club for the upcoming season of the Royal London Cup campaign.

A regular player in the Indian Premier League, who has featured for Mumbai Indians and Lucknow Super Giants, Krunal Pandya has also represented India in 19 T20Is and five ODIs.

He has also featured in 76 A-list matches for India, scored 2231 runs at an average of 37, and also picked up 89 wickets.

In his debut for England, he smashed a half-century off 26 balls as a debutant for India.

Speaking about the signing news, Pandya said:

“I’m extremely excited to get the opportunity to play county cricket and to join such a history Club as Warwickshire.

“Edgbaston is a special place to play cricket and I can’t wait to call it my home. I hope I can play my part in a successful 50-over campaign with the Club and I am looking forward to meeting my teammates.

“I would like to extend my gratitude to both Warwickshire County cricket club and the BCCI for this opportunity.”

Paul Farbrace, Warwickshire’s Director of Cricket, added:

“Krunal is an incredible signing for the Club, and I’m delighted to welcome him to Edgbaston. Krunal will bring a wealth of international experience to a team that will be desperate to do well.

“Due to our impressive T20 performances, we will lose players to The Hundred, but that’s always going to happen to successful teams. The opportunity to add a world-renowned all-rounder to an exciting group is fantastic.”

Warwickshire will play eight group-stage matches in the 2022 season of the Royal London Cup competition, which is to start from August 2 to 23.
