Varun Aaron, the Indian pace bowler, is looking forward to playing county cricket. After the recent Test series defeat to England, many suggested that Indians should play county cricket to get a better hold of the conditions. Aaron was one of the few bowlers who impressed. Though he picked up a few crucial wickets, he conceded too many runs.

Speaking to Press Association Sport, Aaron said, “Playing county cricket is one of those things that is high on my priority list. The cricket in England is very competitive because the conditions don’t favour either the batsmen or bowlers too much. It’s just that we’ve got such a busy schedule, so it’s difficult for me to slot in a stint with a county. But if we have an early IPL (Indian Premier League) next time, then I would definitely look forward to playing county cricket, at least for half a season.”

Cheteshwar Pujara had taken permission from the Board of Control for Cricket in England (BCCI) recently to play county cricket. After being granted permission, Pujara signed up with Derbyshire and will now turn up for them.
