Middlesex duo James Nordin and Sammy Kumar have been named in England Men’s Physical Disability tour to India in January 2024.
Both Nordin and Kumar played in the Disability Premier League this year for the Hawks and Black Cats respectively. Nordin claimed seven wickets in the competition – including three in the final at Derbyshire’s Incora County Ground.
This will be the first time that the team will have toured India since 2019 and they will play five T20 matches in Ahmedabad and Udaipur.
The progress of the England Disability Cricket performance programme continues following a successful Disability Premier League in August, a debut for England Women’s Visually Impaired team in the World Blind Games and England Men’s Learning Disability team’s tri series to South Africa – that they won.
England Disability Performance Manager Jane Powell said: “It’s been four years since our England Men’s Physical Disability squad have played any international cricket and we are very excited to see how we have developed since then.
“With a few retirements and new players surfacing it is a slightly changed squad. Representing England is the pinnacle for any cricketer and so I am pleased for all the players that have been selected for this tour. I am confident that we have selected a squad that can represent us well.”
