According to reports in Sportskeeda, Gujarat Lions’ spinner Shivil Kaushik is all set to play in the Yorkshire Premier League as the mystery spinner has signed a contract with English club, Hull CCC. Yorkshire Premier League is a 12-team league of the premier club competition in the county, which forms a vital part of England’s domestic cricket pyramid structure.
Kaushik, who hogged the limelight for his unusual bowling action, resembling the bowling action oof former South African bowler Paul Adams, had a decent first season in the IPL as he picked up six wickets in his seven matches.
“Shivil will be with us shortly. We are very much looking forward to having him join us for the rest of the season. We’ve obviously seen him in the IPL and we’re sure he’ll be a great success over here in the Yorkshire Premier League. We won our first 4 games in the League but we have slipped up in recent weeks. With the addition of Shivil, we’re hoping to get back to winning ways,” Hull CCC told Sportskeeda.
“My IPL experience has given me a lot of confidence. Picking the wickets of Yuvraj Singh and Glenn Maxwell is something I shall never forget,” said an excited Kaushik.
Kaushik is not the first Indian to participate in this tournament as five other Indian players have already played the tournament including India Under-19 star Sarfaraz Khan. The talented right-hander played just a couple of games for them, but the club knew that he would achieve greater heights in the future.
“The weather was poor then, he only played 2 games, scoring 12 runs. Despite this, we could all tell he was going to go on to better things.” Within a few months of that short stay, Sarfaraz had secured an IPL contract and had become a household name,” said Hull CCC describing Sarfaraz’s stint with the club.
