Abhay Negi is a class all-rounder from Uttar Pradesh in India. A hard-hitting Right-hander that can bat anywhere in the middle order, Abhay is also an outstanding Right-arm Medium/Fast seam bowler, currently representing Uttarakhand in the Indian Domestic System.

Having first appeared in domestic cricket for Tripura in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in January 2018, he switched to Meghalaya, where he represented the region across all three formats. Off the back of some excellent performances, he was recruited by Uttarakhand ahead of the 2022-23 season.

His performances with the ball across all three formats have been outstanding but some of his batting exploits haven’t gone unnoticed, scoring a 14-ball 50 for Maghalaya against Mizoram with a career T20 strike rate of almost 140.

Abhay has had 2 seasons in the UK, a 2021 stint with Fulwood & Broughton CC in the ECB Northern Premier League, yielding 610 runs @ 32 to go with 47 wickets @ 16.94. He returned in 2022, joining Hastings & St Leonards Priory CC but a broken wrist hindered his summer with the bat and restricting him to just 13 appearances. He still made the ball talk though, picking up 29 wickets @ 17.

Highly regarded by his previous clubs, Abhay will be an excellent pick up for any UK club seeking a genuine seam-bowling all-rounder for next summer that already holds his ECB Level 2 coaching qualification.
