India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is all set to play three County Championship games for Kent County Cricket Club. The announcement for the same was made public a few days back after Chahal failed to secure a spot in India’s ODI World Cup 2023 squad that was unveiled by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
It is worth mentioning that Chahal will be the second Indian to play for Kent in the county championship after Arshdeep Singh, who represented the side during June-July and bagged 13 wickets.

Chahal himself also expressed his excitement over becoming part of the prestigious English tournament and expressed his eagerness for the challenge ahead.
“This is an exciting challenge for me, playing in English county cricket, and one I’m very much looking forward to,” Chahal was quoted saying by ESPNcricinfo.
As far as Kent are concerned, they are currently placed on the eighth position in the ten-team County Champions Division 1 table and are in danger of being demoted to Division 2 next season. However, the addition of an experienced spinner like Chahal comes as a relief for them. The same was said by Kent’s director of cricket, Paul Downton, as he welcomed Chahal to his team.
Speaking about signing Chahal, reckoned that they are very much excited and expressed his excitement and optimism about having Chahal in the squad.
“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,” said Downton in his official statement.
