The Washington Sundar have signed with Lancashire, the club announced on Wednesday. The Indian all-rounder, who has been injured since the middle of the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) will join the team in July after his UK visa is approved.
Lancashire stated that Washington would take part in the domestic one-day competition and in the county championship.
“I am very excited to play district cricket for the first time with Lancashire Cricket. Playing in English conditions will be a great experience for me and I can’t wait to play Emirates Old Trafford. I would like to thank both Lancashire Cricket. and BCCI for the opportunity and I look forward to joining the team next month,” he said.
Washington will be in England at the same time as the rest of the Indian team, which will travel across the country for the fifth Test, which was postponed last year, and for a limited overs series of three T20Is and the same number of ODIs.
Washington became the youngest player to debut for India in the T20Is in 2017 and has since made 31 appearances in his country’s shortest format of 25 wickets.
He has also represented India four times in One Day Internationals and four Test matches, most recently in a home Test series defeating England in early 2021.
