Karun Nair will return to Northamptonshire for the start of the 2024 season.
The 32-year-old returns to Wantage Road after a successful stint at the end of 2023 and joins the squad for the first seven County Championship fixtures.
“I’m thrilled to be returning to Northamptonshire for another stint of County Championship cricket.” Nair said.
“Our aim is to win games and get promoted and I’m excited to get stuck in with the bat and help the team secure victories.”
“I would like to thank the coach and captain for believing in me and giving me this wonderful opportunity.”
The Indian batsman made an instant impact in Northamptonshire colours in his short stay last summer, raising a half century on debut against Warwickshire and caught the eye with a magnificent 150 against Surrey at the Kia Oval.
“I was really happy with my form last season and hopefully I can get going right away and put big runs on the board.” Nair said.
Head Coach John Sadler was delighted to be bringing Karun back to the club.
“Because of the impact Karun had with us last season, he was always our main target to get back with us this season.”
“Not only did he score some incredible runs for us, his calmness, his temperament, and his hunger for more runs was superb.”
“We are delighted to get him on board with us again and I’m sure he will be a super asset for us again this season”
Karun returns to the squad ahead of the opening round of the 2024 County Championship.
