Phili swoop for Vimukthi - 11/10/18

Nimesh Vimukthi2

Philadelphia have signed Sri Lankan star all-rounder Nimesh Vimukthi for their 2019 Durham League campaign.

Vimukthi (21) was one of the stand-out professionals in the North Yorkshire and South Durham League last summer. He had re-signed for Bishop Auckland, but unfortunately relegation resulted in the contract becoming null and void.

Bishop's loss has been Phili's gain. Last summer, the tweaker took 55 wickets at 11.71 and scored 677 runs at 29.43 in the NYSD, following an outstanding domestic season in Sri Lanka.

Vimukthi finished as the third leading wicket-taker (50 wickets at 19.60) and scored 288 runs at 24 in Sri Lanka's Tier B Premier League Tournament. 

Phili are delighted to have secured Vimukthi's services and are excited about their chances in the Durham League next summer.
