Worcestershire newcomer Yadvinder Singh has quickly made a good impression after settling into life as a professional cricketer at New Road.

The pace bowler became the second product of the South Asian Cricket Academy to sign a professional contract with Worcestershire earlier this winter.

Assistant Head Coach, Kadeer Ali, says Yadvinder has a similar hunger and desire to succeed as batter Kashif Ali who joined Worcestershire from SACA two years ago.

Kadeer said: “He has settled in really nicely. I’ve known Yadi for a couple of years and played against him a bit in the Birmingham League, when he was playing for Moseley,

“He is a quiet lad who goes about his business and will see this as a great opportunity and give it 150%, I’m sure.

“At the minute, it is just about getting used to the professional environment which he is handling really well and he seems to be loving it.

“Yadi has got that similar hunger and determination to succeed as Kashif and been working really hard for an opportunity and credit to him.

“A lot of people would probably have given up by now but has tried to prove how good he is in the Birmingham League, which he has done over the last couple of years, and his performances for Warwickshire Seconds were quite impressive.

“He has put himself in a strong position, and is happy he has got an opportunity now, and will give it everything he has got.”

Kadeer has also been working in the nets with batter Adam Hose while the rest of the squad were away in Desert Springs.

Hose has experienced a busy winter, playing in the Abu Dhabi T10, Big Bash League and International T20 League.
