Bipul Sharma (35) is an accomplished first-class all-rounder playing for Sikkim in India’s Ranji Trophy competition. A veteran of 200 plus domestic games spanning more than a decade (debut in December 2005), the left-arm spin bowling all-rounder boasts an impressive record and is currently on the verge of the 5,000 run, 300 wicket double.

He has been a consistent performer across all formats and has enjoyed some outstanding Ranji seasons – none more so than his 2014/15 season, when he scored 3 hundreds amongst 491 runs at 70.14 alongside 21 wickets at 24.33.

He is a player in his prime and, since the 2013/14 season, has struck all of his 6 first-class centuries and hasn’t averaged less than 40 in any Ranji campaign. With the ball, he has been steady, averaging early to late 20s throughout this period, with 2 first-class 5 wicket hauls (both taken during the 2015/16 season).

Sharma played in the ICL in 2007, then IPL for Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad between 2010 and 2013. He represented India A in 2010 and Ranji sides Punjab (2005/06-2012/13; 2017/18), Himachal Pradesh (2013/14-16/17) before his move to current side Sikkum this season.

Sharma is an outstanding performer, who is now eager to showcase his talent in UK league cricket in 2019. Given his skill set and proven numbers over a long period of time, he will be a sought after commodity for the 2019 season.
