Throughout the season, local clubs are invited to email in their ‘Man of the Month’ nomination - together with brief details of why the player has been chosen - to have a chance of winning six cricket balls for their club.

Pardeep joined Leamington this season and has made an immediate impact as an all-rounder.

He scored over 400 runs in May, including 295 runs in Saturday league cricket at an average of 98. He has also taken 14 wickets at an average of 17.

Club captain Damian Dixon said: “Pardeep’s all-round performance has helped Leamington’s 3rd XI reach the top of Cotswold Hills League Division 2.

“He is a great cricketer and a great sportsman.”

James Hawkesford, managing director of the family-run estate agency, which has offices in Leamington and Warwick, said: “Pardeep is the epitome of the ‘all-rounder’ and, after putting in such a great performance, is a deserving winner of the prize for May.”
