Mayank Mishra

INS

After a great deal of effort by Shaun Smith (1st XI captain) and CricX the Club is pleased to announce that we have engaged Indian Mayank Mishra as our professional for the 2021 season.

Mayank is a talented left-arm spin bowling all-rounder who finally broke into professional cricket in 2018/19.

Playing for Uttarakhand, alongside IPL legend Rajat Bhatia, Mishra took 18 wickets at 22.55 with best match bowling figures of 8-80 in 5 Ranji Trophy (first-class) matches. He also averaged 20.75 from the middle-order, to include a highest score of 58.

The all-rounder was equally effective in the Vijay Hazare Trophy (List A) and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20) where he averaged 20.33 and 26 with the ball, respectively.

Mishra’s domestic selection was a long time coming, given his exploits in Premier Club, Inter-District (both in the Uttarakhand League) and Office League (Jharkhand) cricket.

Having excelled in all three formats for Uttarakhand in 2018/19, the all-rounder was keen to back-up his maiden season with another strong summer in 2019/20.

Mishra did just that. After a strong T20 (7 wickets at 19.85, including a hatrick) campaign, the tweaker has reinforced his ability, taking a further 18 wickets at 23.50 with 5 wicket hauls against Jharkhand (5-100), and Services (6-48), alongside a highest score of 52 against Assam.

The Uttarakhand star now boasts very impressive domestic figures – particularly in red-ball cricket with batting and bowling averages of 16.35 and 23.02, respectively.

He is a player that comes highly recommended by numerous sources.
