Varun is a high quality all-rounder from New Delhi, India. A strike left-arm Orthodox Spinner, Varun is also a more than capable middle order batsman, as he showed in his two previous visits to the UK in 2011-12, having previously represented Christleton in the Cheshire League.
Somewhat of a late starter, Varun did not make his First Class debut until he was 23 against Haryana in a stacked Delhi team consisting of Sehwag, Ghambir and Ishant Sharma who collected a lazy 9 wickets for the game. Ishant did leave some for Varun, who collected match figues of 4-58 (18) as well as chipping in with a first innings 20.
With previous and successful UK experience, Varun is seeking a return to UK Cricket in 2018, his first visit since making his First Class debut. In his previous two seasons, 2011 & 2012, Varun racked up 956 runs @ 45.52 & helped himself to 86 wickets @ 14.80.
A proven, quality performer, Varun will be an excellent acquisition for a UK club seeking a genuine all-rounder for next summer.
