Slough has pulled off a coup with the signing of Goa superstar Siddharth KV for their 2024 Home Counties Premier League campaign.

KV is an outstanding batter playing for Goa, following his move from Karnataka this summer.

A run machine of the highest order, since his first-class debut during the 2018/19 season, he has racked up over 2,500 runs across the three formats, particularly dominating in both the Ranji Trophy (1,936 runs at 43.02) and Vijay Hazare Trophy (681 runs at 42.56).

Prior to his move to Goa this summer, he played for serial Ranji winners Karnataka. Playing alongside Indian internationals including Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair, and Manish Pandey, Siddharth excelled. He was the leading run-scorer for the State during the 2018/19 Ranji Trophy group stages, before ending the campaign with 728 runs at 42.82 with two centuries. The following summer (2019/20), he would back up with 331 runs at 36.77, before topping Karnataka’s run charts again during their 2021/22 Ranji season (410 runs at 58.57).

KV has also starred in white ball cricket, particularly in List A with 527 runs at 47.90 in his 16 innings, including Vijay Hazare season tallies of 253 runs at 63.25 (2020/21), and 245 runs at 49 (2021/22).

Surprisingly, KV didn’t feature for Karnataka in 2022/23, hence his switch to Goa this summer. He hasn’t disappointed, striking back-to-back fifties in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (Nov/Dec 2023) against Tamil Nadu (61), and Punjab (70), before a sensational ton (151*) on his Ranji Trophy debut for Goa against Tripura (Jan 2024). He would go on to score 467 runs at 38.91 with three further fifties.

A player that comes highly recommended by Indian Test triple centurion, Karun Nair, KV is now set to venture abroad having signed with Slough for their 2024 Home Counties Premier League campaign.
