Bradninch and Kentisbeare are pleased to announce the re-signing of their Indian star all-rounder, Yuvraj Singh, for their 2024 Devon Premier League campaign.

Singh, much like his legendary namesake, is an explosive cricketer making waves in Indian domestic cricket. Since the return of cricket post-COVID, Singh has been a stand-out performer for Railways across the three formats.

A genuine seam bowling all-rounder, Singh starred on his Ranji Trophy debut (v Karnataka) in February 2022 taking 5-93 (27.3) in the first innings before a brisk 48 (68) from the lower-middle order. He would then take 5 wickets and score 46 (55 balls) in his second match (v Puducherry), before a barnstorming maiden first-class century (103 off 133 balls) in his third (v Jammu and Kashmir).

Singh had already impressed in T20 cricket taking 6 wickets at 14 during the 2021/22 Syed Mushtaq Ali campaign, before following up with 11 wickets at 10.54 during the 2022/23 edition.

It’s fair to say Singh is making quite a name for himself on the domestic circuit, and this summer (2023/24) has continued to shine with 9 wickets at 20.55 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (List A), before bagging figures of 5/10 & 2/21 against Chandigarh in the opening round of the Ranji Trophy (FC).

A sharp, and skillful opening bowler who is both a technically astute, and explosive middle-order bat, Singh really does have quite the future. Recommended by legendary Railways, and CricX client, Mahesh Rawat, Singh is looking to progress in the game.

In a view toward his development, Singh headed abroad to play for Bradninch and Kentisbeare last summer. He impressed (714 runs at 37.05 & 36 wickets at 15.81), and courtesy of this the Club has re-signed the Indian all-rounder for a second Devon Premier League stint in 2024.
