Samit Gohil is a record-breaking batting all-rounder playing for Tripura in Indian domestic cricket.

The opening bat has been a stand-out in first-class (Ranji Trophy) cricket, in particular, since his debut during the 2012/13 season.

In 53 matches to date, Gohil has 5 centuries and is just shy of 3,000 runs with an average above 35. The run machine has also transferred his red-ball form into List A (Vijay Hazare Trophy) cricket, too, hitting 481 runs at 43.72 in his 13 matches.

Gohil’s journey in domestic cricket originally began with Gujarat, with whom he spent 7 seasons (2012/13-19/20). He really hit his straps during his barnstorming 2016/17 season, hitting 2 centuries including his record-breaking 359* in the Ranji Trophy quarter-final against Odisha. His innings, which included 45 fours and 1 six, broke numerous records and he now holds the world record for the highest score for an opener carrying his bat. He would go on to help win the Ranji Trophy, beating Mumbai in the final.

His exploits helped secure a UK gig in 2017 and he impressed (328 runs at 41 and 14 wickets at 15.07) in his 8 matches for Wellington Cricket Club (Birmingham League) before returning for India Blue (Duldeep Trophy) commitments.

Since then, he has continued to impress on the domestic circuit with his 2019/20 season his best since his remarkable 2016/17 campaign, hitting 502 runs at 38.61.

The Tripura run machine is now set on another stint abroad - this time to play in the Dutch Topklasse competition for Sparta this summer.
