Greenock have re-signed Indian sensation Saurabh Bandekar for their 2019 WDCU campaign.

The former Indian first-class all-rounder struck 567 runs at 51.54 and took 20 wickets at 27.55 in the Premier Division of Scotland's Western District Cricket Union last summer.

Speaking about the signing, Greenock's Secretary, Brian Papworth stated the following:

"Greenock Cricket Club are delighted to welcome Saurabh Bandekar back to the Club for the 2019 season. He made a big impression, both on and off the field, in 2018 and was a key factor in our successful campaign to retain our position in the WDCU Premier Division. We are sure that he will play a leading role again next year as we look to consolidate our place and indeed challenge for league honours"

Saurabh also had the following to say about re-signing.

"Really happy to re-sign with Greenock. Would never have imagined I would be so comfortable at any club away from home. The guys in the team are a top bunch to play and hang with and the people at the club are so friendly and welcoming that club feels like my own. I have definitely made a few good friends for life. They are a really professional club and love their cricket. I had a good season there and I look to have an even better one next year and help the team get on top in the league".

The Indian star will return to Greenock in April next summer, following a stint in Australia for New City in the Cricket Albury Wodonga competition.
