Rye recruit Mumbai speedster - 17/11/14

Kshemal Waingankar SUSSEX COUNTY Cricket League club Rye have recruited Indian quick Kshemal Waingankar for season 2015.

Waingankar (29) is a right-arm opening who is a long-standing member of the powerhouse Mumbai squad. During his tenure with Ranji Trophy’s most successful side, he has played alongside a host of the games’ greats, including Zaheer Khan, Wasim Jaffer and Sachin Tendulkar.

He has starred in three outings against the touring England side – firstly for the India President’s XI in 2006, taking figures of 4-79 including the wickets of Andrew Strauss, Geraint Jones and Michael Vaughan (in both innings).

In 2008, he took a devastating 5-37 (8) for the Mumbai Cricket Association XI to see England bowled out for 98. He took the wickets of Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen, Samit Patel, Ravi Bopara and Luke Wright.

Then in November 2012 in a 3-day match for Mumbai A, Waingankar proved to be England’s nemesis once more, taking 3-72 (25) in the first innings, including 8 maidens and the wickets of Nick Compton (bowled) and, for a second time Bell and Patel, both caught behind.

Waingankar is a proven performer who has signed for the Sussex County League club after three successful stints with Downend (2005), Old Whitgiftians (2007) and fellow Sussex club Pulborough (2013).
