India pace bowler Varun Aaron has announced that he is interested in playing County cricket so that he can develop his game and increase his familiarity with English conditions.
Aaron is hoping to follow in the footsteps of batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who recently signed with Derbyshire for the rest of the County season.
“Playing county cricket is one of those things that is high on my priority list,” Aaron said. “The cricket in England is very competitive because the conditions don’t favour either the batsmen or bowlers too much.
“It’s just that we’ve got such a busy schedule, so it’s difficult for me to slot in a stint with a county. But if we have an early IPL next time, then I would definitely look forward to playing county cricket, at least for half a season.
“I think I’ve played enough in England – I’ve been here two months – so I have a decent understanding of English conditions.
“English conditions are quite testing for everybody involved in the game, for bowlers and batsmen. So I’m really looking forward to playing in England as it will help me develop as a cricketer.”
