The Hills have unveiled Irish international all-rounder Simi Singh as their first signing for the 2019 season.

The 31 year-old is moving from YMCA where he had played from 2012, but told CricketEurope earlier this month he was seeking a new challenge.

Milverton is his chosen venue, and his capture is sure to reinvigorate The Hills, who had a fairly modest season by their high standards.

Irish passport holder Singh has won 20 caps since his debut against New Zealand in 2017, scoring two half centuries and taking 19 wickets at 25.21.

There was considerable interest from clubs both north and south, but Singh has opted to stay in Leinster cricket.

He is currently in India for the winter, working on his game in an attempt to cement his place in the Irish set-up.
