Avinash Yadav is an exceptional left-arm spinner playing for Railways in the top tier of India’s Ranji Trophy first-class competition. The veteran tweaker was the stand-out spinner, topping the “Group A” wicket-charts in 2018/19 with 41 wickets at 26.70 with 3 five-wicket hauls. He finished inside the top ten wicket-takers across all 4 divisions of Ranji Trophy cricket this summer. Yadav also produced some useful performances with the bat, including his second first-class half-century amongst 158 runs at 14.38 in 2018/19.

2018/19 was his most dominant to date, following several useful Ranji campaigns (12 wickets at 24.66 and 11 wickets at 27.54 in 2016/17 and 2017/18 respectively). Playing for the Railways side skippered by CricX superstar Mahesh Rawat, Yadav has now taken over 100 wickets across the three formats.

He has finally produced the potential that saw him represent India at Under-19 level alongside the likes of Piyush Chawla, Irfan Pathan, and Robin Uthappa back in 2003 to 2005. Yadav has been a loyal servant of Railways cricket since returning to the fold in 2012/13 after his stint with Indian Cricket League side Mumbai Champs.

After his prolific Ranji Trophy season, the talented left-arm spin bowling all-rounder signed his first overseas contract with Liverpool League club Wigan. Unsurprisingly, Yadav impressed, taking an incredible 58 wickets at 5.91 with 6 five-wicket hauls to finish amongst the leading wicket-takers and guide his side to promotion to the ECB Premier Division in 2020.

Despite only 6 wickets during the 2019/20 Ranji season, Yadav's success for Wigan in 2019 prompted them to re-sign him for 2020. Unfortunately, COVID struck to restrict travel, therefore he is now eager to secure another stint for the UK 2022 season.
