Kushen Kishun (27) is a leg-spin bowling all-rounder playing for KwaZulu-Natal Inland under the tutelage of South Africa A coach Shane Burger. Kishun has played over 100 domestic matches since his first-class debut in February 2011, but didn’t cement his spot till the 2015/16 season. He struck 318 runs at 31.80 and took 16 wickets at 19.93 that season and has become a key performer for Inland since.

Kishun was a player of serious promise – he dominated Coke Week for KZN and played against the touring England Under-19s in January 2009 for the South African Invitational Under-19 side – taking 3-21 (8) in the second one-dayer, including the wickets of Jaik Mickleburgh, Liam Dawson and Scott Borthwick – all LBW.

Whilst it took several years to establish himself as a professional cricketer, Kishun has since done that and is in the middle of a strong 2018/19 season, with 226 runs at 32.28 and highest score of 99* in first-class cricket.

The talented all-rounder is now eager to spend a season plying his trade in UK league cricket. He will be a sought after player, given his all-round skill set and full season availability.
