India’s star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been signed up by Kent Cricket for the remainder of the County Championship season “subject to regulatory approval”.
“Kent Cricket is delighted to announce the signing of India international leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal for the Club’s remaining County Championship matches, subject to regulatory approval,” Kent announced in an official statement. 
A seasoned white-ball international, Chahal has 87 wickets to date in 33 first-class appearances, with best figures of 6-44 coming for his native Haryana against Hyderabad in India’s Ranji Trophy.
Also previously an India youth international in the sport of chess, he will be available for selection in Kent’s remaining two home Championship matches against Nottinghamshire and Lancashire, as well as Kent’s away fixture against Somerset.
On joining Kent in first-class cricket until the end of the season, Chahal said, “This is an exciting challenge for me, playing in English county cricket, and one I’m very much looking forward to.”
Chahal is the second India international to feature for Kent this season, after left-arm seamer Arshdeep Singh also wore the Kent shirt in the Championship competition back in June and July.
Kent’s Director of Cricket, Paul Downton, said, “We’re delighted to have secured a spinner of Yuzvendra’s quality for the last three Championship matches of the season, with Matt Parkinson not available to us until next year, and Hami Qadri recently injured.
“He is really looking forward to playing in English conditions and will bring a significant amount of skill and international experience to our squad,” he added. (ANI)
