Anupam Sanklecha (36) is a stalwart of the powerhouse Maharasthra side in Indian domestic cricket. He has led the attack for most of his career, dating back to his first-class debut in November 2004. Since then, he has played 57 Ranji Trophy games, where he has taken exactly 200 wickets at 25.60 with 12 five wicket bags and 2 ten wicket match hauls.

Before the introduction of the Indian Premier League (IPL), he represented the Mumbai Champs in the Indian Cricket League (ICL). Thereafter, he has been a loyal servant of a Maharasthtra side that has been littered with Indian internationals over the years.

Sanklecha is a prime example of the old adage “like a fine wine”, as he’s clearly getting better with age. His performances between 2004/05 and 2012/13 were inconsistent and he didn’t feature in Ranji cricket between 2006/07 and 2011/12. However, since his strong 2013/14 season (23 wickets at 30.86), he has excelled taking figures of 32 wickets at 20.34 (2014/15), 21 wickets at 25.42 (2015/16), 43 wickets at 16.18 (2016/17) and 24 wickets at 29.54 (2018/19). Sanklecha has also proven his worth with bat-in-hand over the years, with 3 half-centuries and a highest score of 66, all with a first-class average of 14.20 (16.08 in List A cricket).

The Indian has also starred in UK league cricket. After a stint in Durham for Evenwood in 2007, he has spent the past 5 seasons dominating the Home Counties Premier League for Shipton-under-Wychwood (2014-18). In all cricket he scored 1,970 runs at 29.40 and took 252 wickets at 13.03. he was the stand-out seamer in the Home Counties League, regularly featuring in the top few wicket-takers. His 63 wickets at 10.56 in 2017 was his best, which included figures of 8-8 when routing Reading for 38.

Unfortunately, the club were relegated down to the Cherwell League for 2019, therefore due to league rules Sanklecha is deemed ineligible, thus he is seeking a new club for the upcoming summer. Clearly, he is a class act and will bring plenty to whatever club he joins, both on and off the field.
