Shreevats Goswami is an explosive top-order batter playing for Bengal in India. He boasts a tremendous record across the three formats, following a glittering career for India Under-19s.

After scores of 104 and 97 in the tri-series tour of South Africa in 2008, he played an integral role in India’s ICC Under-19 World Cup triumph in Malaysia, scoring a crucial 58 in the semi-final against a testing New Zealand attack.

Goswami made his first-class debut later that year and, in between, earned an IPL contract with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, with whom he spent three seasons. Following limited match play in 2010, he was recruited by the Knight Riders in 2011, then the Rajasthan Royals in 2012 before a return to the IPL in 2018, joining runners-up, the Sunrisers.

Alongside his IPL exploits, Goswami was making waves in both first-class and List A for Bengal. In 2014/15 he struck 408 runs at 40.80 (alongside 490 List A runs at 81.66 with 2 centuries) then followed up with his maiden first-class century the following season (112*). He enjoyed another barnstorming 2016/17 season, which included two centuries and a career-best 225* amongst 492 runs at 54.66 in Ranji Trophy cricket.

However, he suffered a couple of lean seasons and was subsequently dropped, but returned to the Ranji fold in 2020/21, after an impressive Vijay Hazare Trophy (List A) campaign the previous season, scoring 342 runs at 48.85. Post-COVID, he has since joined Mizoram where he hopes to excel during the 2022/23 season.

The talented Indian run-machine, who doubles as a gifted keeper, and off-spinner, has spent 2 outstanding stints abroad playing for Drakes Huddersfield powerhouse Delph and Dobcross (2016-17), and Flowery Field in the Greater Manchester Cricket League (2022). For Delph, he averaged well over 50 and was instrumental in the club’s success courtesy of his attacking stroke-play. Last summer, his success continued striking 1,006 runs at 62.88 alongside 27 wickets at 28.78 with his off-spin to help guide his GMCL club to promotion.

Gowsmani, who also holds a UKCC level 2, is now looking open to another stint abroad next summer and is, without doubt, one of the best pros available.
