Yashpal Singh is a record-breaking batting all-rounder who has spent the past two decades lording domestic cricket in India.

Such has been his dominance over the years, particularly for Services, he racked up an astonishing 15,869 runs across the three domestic formats, with first-class, and List A averages of 50.13, and 50.41, respectively.

Yashpal holds the record for the most runs in India's One-Day (List A) competition, the Vijay Hazare Trophy (3,193 runs at 60.24). He also sits fourth on the first-class (Ranji Trophy) run charts (8,700 runs at 50), behind domestic legends Wasim Jaffer (12,038), Amol Muzumdar (9,202), and Devendra Bundela (9,201).

Throughout his glittering career, Yashpal churned out 36 hundreds, including doubles against Goa (200*), Maharashtra (203*), and Tripura (250*).

Whilst known for his batting, Yashpal has been a useful operator with ball-in-hand over the years - initially with his medium-pace, and more recently with his off-spin. During his 314-game domestic career he bagged well over 100 wickets across the formats, including 74 at 34.35 and 3 five-wicket hauls in Ranji Trophy cricket.

However, it's with bat-in-hand he earned his stripes, which saw him pick up IPL gigs with the Kolkata Knight Riders and Kochi Tuskers Kerala.

To put Yashpals career into perspective, he averaged 50 plus in 19 of his 38 Ranji and Vijay Hazare Trophy seasons. To evidence "age is just a number", like a fine wine Yashpal has got better with age - 860 runs at 78.18, and 488 runs at 122 during his 2018/19 first-class, and List A campaigns, respectively.

Yashpal is in the twilight years of what has been an incredible domestic career. Now 40, the Indian run-machine is set to retire from the domestic circuit in favour of playing cricket down under for the 2022/23 season. A player with not only a wealth of playing experience but a highly qualified (BCCI A/B) coach, who is looking to go down the coaching path once his career has drawn to a close.

Any Australian club would do well to find a player boasting a higher pedigree than Yashpal, and he is someone we whole-heartedly recommend for the season ahead.
