He was set to embark on his maiden UK league stint with Acomb in 2020. However, COVID struck, and both parties agreed to have another crack last summer. The club were glad they did, as the UAE star excelled in the Yorkshire Premier League North, hitting 704 runs at 44 and taking 38 wickets at 18.42.

After an enjoyable maiden UK stint, D'Silva is keen for another season in 2022. Given his success and genuine all-round status, he will be a sought-after commodity for the UK 2022 season.
