County club Kent has secured the services of India pacer Navdeep Saini for the remainder of the county championship.
Saini will be taking part in all five of Kent’s remaining games and will also be participating in the Royal London 50-over Cup.
He is now the fifth Indian player to participate in county cricket for England.
Saini was a part of the Rajasthan Royals in this year’s IPL.
Additionally, Saini was excited to be playing for Kent and giving it his all for the county club.
Saini will join hands with New Zealand’s Matt Henry and most likely make his debut against Warwickshire next week.
Kent is currently at the eighth position after losing their last game against Northamptonshire.
Paul Downton, Kent’s Director of Cricket welcomed Saini into their fold and said that the pacer is a valuable addition to their squad.
England also remains frustrated on the issue of not having any Indian male players for their 100-ball T20 tournament.
Currently, the BCCI does not allow any of it’s active Indian players to participate in overseas league so players several other international players like Navdeep Saini get to showcase their skills in the second-string 50-over tournament.
