The Warwickshire Director of Cricket, Paul Farbrace expressed excitement about bringing in Pandya for the tournament.
He said, “Krunal is an incredible signing for the club, and I’m delighted to welcome him to Edgbaston. Krunal Pandya will bring a wealth of international experience to a team that will be desperate to do well.”
