New Delhi: Paul Valthaty, who came to prominence for his exploits for Kings XI Punjab in the 2011 IPL, has decided to return to Mumbai cricket. The 29-year-old played for Himachal Pradesh last season and will not be eligible for selection until next season due to a cooling-off period clause.
"I have already given my No-Objection Certificate to the Mumbai Cricket Association and I played for Himachal Pradesh last season because I wanted a full season of first-class cricket and Mumbai already had a packed team," Valthaty was reported as saying. "I had a wrist injury mid-season due to which I had to miss a few domestic games. My wrist issue is now sorted as I got a surgery done in London and I am feeling my best again. My stint with HP will only help my cricket."
Valtathy scored 120 runs at an average of 20.00 in the previous Ranji Trophy season.
