27-year old Siddhesh Lad has joined Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming Indian Premier League 2020. The right-hand batsman had been traded from Mumbai Indians earlier today.
Lad is currently representing Mumbai in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. More than a handy all-rounder, Siddhesh Lad recently registered his career-best bowling figures of 5 for 13 against Mizoram on November 8.
The right-hand batsman has a batting average of over 43 in both First-class and List A cricket. He has played 38 T20 games and scored 628 runs at an average of 25 with three fifties to his name. He notably got his first IPL runs with a six for MI.
We wish our new signing Siddhesh Lad all the best for the IPL 2020. Eden Gardens, Kolkata and the entire army of Purple and Gold can't wait to see you in action.
