Talking about joining Warwickshire for the Royal London one-day Cup, Krunal said: I’m extremely excited to get the opportunity to play county cricket and to join such a history Club as Warwickshire. Edgbaston is a special place to play cricket and I can’t wait to call it my home. I hope I can play my part in a successful 50-over campaign with the Club and I am looking forward to meeting my teammates.

I would like to extend my gratitude to both Warwickshire County Cricket Club and BCCI for this opportunity.”

Warwickshire Director of Cricket, Paul Farbrace said: “Krunal is an incredible signing for the Club, and I’m delighted to welcome him to Edgbaston. Krunal will bring a wealth of international experience to a team that will be desperate to do well. Due to our impressive T20 performances, we will lose players to The Hundred, but that’s always going to happen to successful teams. The opportunity to add a world-renowned all-rounder to an exciting group is fantastic.”

Warwickshire is set to play eight group-stages matches, with four at home at Edgbaston, in this summer’s Royal London Cup competition, taking place from 2 to 23 August.
