Plymouth is delighted to confirm the signing of Indian first-class batting all-rounder Nazim Siddiqui for their 2023 Devon League campaign.

Siddiqui is a high-class batter who opens up for Jharkhand in a side that includes the likes of Indian internationals Saurabh Tiwary, Ishan Kishan, Shahbaz Nadeem, and CricX young gun Kumar Kushagra.

Since his debut during the 2017/18 Ranji season, Siddiqui has excelled, particularly in first-class (Ranji Trophy), and List A (Vijay Hazare Trophy) cricket. At the point of writing, the powerful right-hander has scored 1,759 runs at 35.18 with 4 centuries in Ranji cricket.

To compliment his batting, Siddiqui is a more than useful medium pacer. Bowling opportunities are limited in the strong Jharkhand side flooded with high-quality spin, but he is a regular to the bowling crease in corporate cricket.

Siddiqui, who has skippered Jharkhand in the past, has shown a propensity to score big against strong bowling attacks. He has a highest score of 173, another three hundreds, and a 99 against serial Ranji Trophy winners Saurashtra.

A player of serious pedigree, Siddiqui is looking to impress in what will be his maiden UK stint in 2023 having signed with Plymouth for their Devon League campaign.
