Darshan Misal is an established first-class player playing for Goa in India’s Ranji Trophy competition. A genuine all-rounder, Misal bats in the top-middle order and bowls left-arm spin.

He made his first-class debut in 2012/13 and hasn’t looked back. In 44 Ranji matches, the all-rounder has scored 2,104 runs at 30.49 with 4 centuries alongside 53 wickets at 46.66, with 2 five-wicket bags and best bowling figures of 7-68 taken in one of his most recent matches.

Misal has grown into an accomplished player, following a slow start to his domestic career, playing just 4 matches (going wicket-less and scoring only 109 runs) in his opening two seasons (2012/13-13/14). However, the 2014/15 summer was his breath-through season for Misal, scoring 480 runs at 36.92 with two centuries, alongside 9 wickets.

His promise was rewarded with South Zone selection in 2 Deodhar Trophy matches (Nov-Dec 2014), playing alongside the likes of Karun Nair, Robin Utthapa, Manish Pandey and Vinay Kumar. Misal has been a consistent performer ever since for Goa, racking up 474 runs at 43.09 and 10 wickets at 27.27 (2015/16), 492 runs at 30.75 and 10 wickets at 38.40 (2016/17), 199 runs at 22.11 and 14 wickets at 42.50 (2017/18) and 350 runs at 23.33 and 10 wickets at 62.20 (2018/19) in recent seasons.

The talented all-rounder, who also skippered Goa during the 2017/18 season, is highly regarded in domestic cricket, but has been overlooked for IPL auctions to date. So, in a view to gaining more exposure, he spent the UK 2018 season plying his trade for Highfield in the Liverpool and District Cricket Competition. He excelled in the Premier Division, hitting 632 runs at 45.14 and taking 38 wickets at 22.05. Unfortunately, he returned home early due to State pre-season commitments, but signed-off with a ton (100) and figures of 4-44 to beat Rainford.

The Goa skipper is now open to a UK return in 2020, following his success with Highfield back in 2018. He will be a sought after option - given his demand skill set and proven numbers, home and abroad.
