Philadelphia CC are delighted to announce the signing of Indian all-rounder Manisankar Murasingh for their 2023 campaign in the North East Premier League

Murasingh is an exceptional all-rounder currently playing for Tripura under former Indian wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha’s leadership.

A sharp opening bowler, and hard-hitting left-handed middle-order batter, Murasingh has dominated State cricket in recent years. Since his Ranji Trophy debut during the 2009/10 season, he has taken 220 wickets at 29.42 and scored 3,248 runs at 27.52. He has taken nine 5-wicket bags, with best match figures of 10-164, and boasts 4 centuries, including a highest score of 150.

Murasingh has been a reliable performer over the years, with his 2019/20 Ranji campaign his most prolific. The seamer finished inside the top 5 wicket-takers in the Ranji Trophy, taking 49 wickets at 17.02, with three 5-wicket hauls. He also cracked 2 centuries amongst 598 runs at 42.71.

Murasingh really is a class act who recently (Sept 2022) earned selection for East Zone in India’s Duldeep Trophy. The all-rounder is looking to impress this summer and push for higher honours.

Thereafter, he is set to return to the UK in 2023 having recently signed with Philadelphia for their North East Premier League campaign. Murasingh will be eager to better his maiden season stats when playing for Todmorden in the Lancashire League (480 runs at 36.92 and 24 wickets at 31.04).

The Indian all-rounder really is a star performer who will be looking to impress for Philadelphia in the North East next summer.
