About Me:

I am an off-spin bowler with excellent turn and good control. I am a genuine wicket taker and match winner. I am also a solid and reliable middle order right hand batsman. I spent most of my junior career as a bat and handy bowler, but on changing to higher grade I found myself as a middle order bat and a match winning off-spinner. Since then I have managed to post a number of high 50�s and 100's when given the opportunity with the bat and on a number of occasions taken 5 wickets or more in an inning. I am considered as one of the better all-rounder in the comp. To me cricket is a way of life and one in which I gain great pleasure.
