North Devon is delighted to announce the signing of Indian domestic star Shantanu Mishra for their 2023 Devon 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 (1,434 runs at 36.76).
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), 540 runs at 38.57 (2019/20), and 268 runs at 44.66 (2021/22).
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 29.18 in List A cricket bowling economical off-spin.
Last summer, the Indian star joined Hylton for their Durham and North East Cricket League campaign. He excelled hitting 719 runs at 55.31 alongside his 17 wickets at 17.82 to conclude a great maiden UK stint.
Now the Odisha batting all-rounder is set for a second UK stint in 2023 having signed with North Devon for their Devon Premier League campaign.
