Punit Bisht-2

Garstang have pulled of a coup with the signing of Punit Bisht for their 2019 Northern Premier League campaign.

Bisht (32) is an accomplished first-class player who has graced the Ranji Trophy circuit for over a decade. Since his debut in 2006, the wicket-keeper batsman has played 192 matches across the three domestic formats scoring 5,154 runs with 8 centuries and 389 dismissals.

The Indian star has been on fire for new provincial side, Meghalaya this summer. He has enjoyed an outstanding start to his summer, particularly in the Vijay Hazare Trophy campaign. Bisht struck two centuries amongst 502 runs at 71.71 to finish third on the run-charts - behind Indian stars Abhinhav Mukund (560 runs) and Gautam Gambhir (518 runs). Bisht has subsequently backed up with successive fifties (66*, 58) to start his Ranji Trophy season.

Bisht, who is on song this summer, has recently signed to play in the Northern Premier League for Garstang Cricket Club. A high profile signing and someone with all the ability to set the League alight in 2019.

Speaking about the signing, Garstang Chairman Mike Walling stated:

"We are delighted to have Punit on board for the 2019 season, he is an experienced cricketer with a proven first class record and is someone we look forward to adding to the club. I’m sure his experience will add real benefit to all aspects of the club both on and off the field".
