Downpatrick have confirmed the signing of Indian all-rounder Ravi Patil for the 2024 season.

The 36 year-old is no stranger to Northern Ireland, having played previously for Dundrum as an overseas professional.

Indeed, the explosive batsman entered the record books when he struck six sixes in an over against Sion Mills in an Ulster Shield match at the famous County Tyrone venue in 2012.

He was also very involved off the field carying out extensive coaching work in the schools.

Hopefully he will be a big success once again in the NCU.
