Felling is pleased to welcome Indian run machine Shantanu Mishra to the club for their 2022 North East Premier League campaign.
Mishra is an accomplished batting all-rounder playing for Odisha across the three formats in Indian domestic cricket.
Since his Ranji Trophy (first-class) debut, where he struck scores of 36, and 49, against Mumbai, he has gone on to score nearly 1,500 runs, the majority coming in red-ball cricket (1,166 runs at 35.33).
Recommended by former Indian opener, and English club cricket legend, Wasim Jaffer, Mishra has been a Ranji Trophy stand-out, hitting season tallies of 272 runs at 45.33 (2017/18), 354 runs at 27.23 (2018/19), and 540 runs at 38.57 (2019/20).
In white-ball cricket, Mishra has also enjoyed success for the State, with whom he skippered for their 2020/21 Vijay Hazare Trophy (List A) campaign.
Whilst bowling opportunities in first-class have been limited, he is a regular in white-ball cricket, with 11 wickets at 28 in List A cricket bowling economical off-spin.
Given the absence of Ranji Trophy cricket over the past two seasons, due to a certain pandemic, the talented batting all-rounder is now set to play abroad this summer having joined Felling Cricket Club for their 2022 North East Premier League campaign.
