THE LAZY PYTHON.............
Comes from the suburbs of Mumbai, plays with a big heart and an even bigger frame. Crucial member of the unit has played some brilliant knocks.
One of the best Technical Batsmen in the circuit and has been the most consistent Batsman for the Club.
With a safe pair of hands and a keen cricketing sense he has been the perfect confidant for the captain on and off field.
Like all the good number three batsmen in the game of Cricket, this Mumbaikar has got the ability to steady the ship when an early wicket falls and go berserk from the first ball, if the team gets off to a flier. An equally good player of spin and pace bowling, he is a treat to watch when in full flow. Standing way over six feet tall, his huge front foot stride enables him to smash the spinners down the ground without stepping out. In addition to this, he is perhaps the best puller/hooker of the ball in the whole team. Has enmassed over 1000 runs in the last couple of reasons. Has got a great pair of hands- is the most reliable slip fielder and keeps wickets occasionally. His calmness and cricketing acumen make him an apt candidate for the role of a vice-captain.

The two were just wanting to get back into the game slowly with a view to joining a local club to play some friendly cricket....more
