Aditya Edekar is a Canterbury A and former Auckland A representative, top-order batter. He currently is the Premier Captain of Sydenham Cricket Club (Christchurch), in only his second season at the club, showing his strong leadership skills. To further iterate these credentials, Edekar captained the Ellerslie Cricket Club in the Auckland Premier Competition for two seasons as a 19 and 20-year-old.

A young cricketer with an already impressive record, Edekar was born and raised in Auckland, beginning his representative honours in the City of Sails before moving south to Canterbury.

In Christchurch, Edekar has had two successful seasons being among the top run-getters in both seasons – scoring 930 runs in the 2020/21 season and breaking a 130 year old club record for most Premier runs, at a club where past Blackcaps great Stephen Fleming played. He also had very strong performances for Canterbury A – averaging over 70 over the past two seasons in red-ball cricket. He has been involved in Canterbury Men’s inter-squad games as well as representing Canterbury against touring side Pakistan A.

In the past 3 seasons, Edekar, has scored close to 4,000 runs at an average of nearly 50 and strike rate of 80 in club and 2nd XI A cricket in both Canterbury and Auckland.

An outstanding Auckland A campaign in 2018/19, where he was amongst the top run-getters for the association at 2nd XI level, further builds strong base of consistent performance over 3 seasons. Highlights include 91 against Canterbury A in a 3-day fixture (in a team featuring 9 first-class Auckland Reps and NZ test Opener Jeet Raval) and back to back scores of 98*, 88, 89, 80* and 50 against Auckland A, Otago A, Canterbury A, and Wellington A respectively. This coupled with his past club season where he was amongst the top 3 run-getters in the Auckland and Christchurch Metro Premier competition and with over 1000+ and 900+ runs have made him one of the most prolific performers across the country.

Edekar has risen through the Auckland Cricket ranks, being a part of the U19 squad, as well as U17 and U14 teams. He is a past academy member of the Development of Future Aces Programme, an academy set up to nurture young cricketers into future first-class representatives. He has strong school cricket pedigree, captaining St Kentigern College 1st XI (one of the best cricketing schools in the country), as well as being invited to represent St Edwards Oxford in England, on scholarship, gaining vital English condition experience. During the 2016/17 season, he represented Ellerslie Cricket Club in the Auckland Premier Competition. He scored 700 runs, including being the 4th highest run-getter in One Day competition, and 14th overall.

Edekar has been coached by the late former Blackcaps great Sir Martin Crowe and is currently under the guidance of ex-Blackcaps Rob Nicol and Matthew Bell. He is an extremely motivated young man, who has strong work ethic and drive. He comes highly recommended by Gloucester CC first-class player Ryan Higgins as well as ex-Blackcaps Rob Nicol and Matthew Bell.

The run machine is now looking to ply his trade abroad, once again, following his last stint in England playing for Hallam in the strong Cricket Yorkshire South Premier League.
