Daniel Doram is a gangling left-arm spinner whose been described as a "once in a generation talent". Hailing from the small Caribbean Island of Sint Maarten, the towering 6'7" Dutch Passport holding tweaker, is looking to build on what is already an impressive career.

Doram represented the Netherlands through the age groups and, on the first of July 2013, became the youngest Dutch/West Indian to play first-class cricket when making his Netherlands debut in their ICC Inter-Continental Cup match against Ireland.

On debut, the 15-year-old claimed figures of 5-82, including the notable scalps of James Shannon, Kevin O'Brien, Stuart Thompson, Trent Johnston, and George Dockrell. A few years earlier, he broke another long-standing record, when he represented the Leeward Islands in the Regional Under-19 Competition, aged only 13.

Such was his talent, Doram was recruited to by Sussex CCC and, alongside his studies at Hurstpierpoint College, represented the Development and 2nd XI sides between 2013 and 2016. His highlight came in a 2nd XI T20 match against Somerset (May 2016) taking figures of 3-28 (4) including the wickets of Adam Hose and Michael Leask (both bowled), before trapping Roelof van der Merwe in front first ball to claim a hat-trick.

Doram has since returned to his Island, represented Leeward Islands at the West Indies Cricket Board Under-19 Limited Overs Tournament in 2016, and now plays in the domestic T20 and Limited Overs competitions. In December 2018, he made his long-awaited first-class debut for the Leeward Islands, but had to wait till February 2022 for his second outing. He performed well, and subsequently enjoyed a third match to end his 2 West Indies 4-day Championship games with 8 wickets at 11.87.

Holder of a Dutch Passport, Doram has utilised this to play league cricket for Crook Town during the 2018-19 season. He excelled in the Durham League scoring 1,741 runs at 40.49 alongside 101 wickets at 14.32 for the club. Courtesy of his success, Doram was picked up by a Devon League club for the 2020 season, but due to COVID, his return was jeopardised.

Doram is a quality performer, who is now eager to return to the UK in 2023, subject to playing 3 more FC matches to qualify for an ISP Visa. If he fails to secure these games, he is open to opportunities in Ireland and Holland.
