Akil Greenidge is a talented top order Batsman, originally from Barbados but schooled in England at the prestigious Dulwich College. An attacking Right-Hander who bats anywhere from 1-6, Akil also bowls some handy right-arm medium pace and has an outstanding pair of hands. Preferring to bat at 3 or 4, Akil has been used in a variety of positions at the Cambridge MCCU.

Schooled at Dulwich College, he spent time backwards and forwards between the UK and Barbados. He was a regular in the Barbados age groups up to U19 level and captained his native Barbados U19 in his final year of age=based Cricket. Upon finishing School, Akil has continued to study and spent 2017-19 playing for the Cambridge MCCU. In his first season his most notable performance was notching back to back 50’s against Middlesex CCC 1st XI, the then defending county champions. He has moved to Loughborough to continue his studying from 2019 onwards

Akil had a couple of stints of club Cricket before his time at Cambridge, playing for Bury CC in 2016 before joining Micklehurst CC in 2017, both seasons in the Greater Manchester League. A steady start with Bury CC, 462 runs @ 24.32 didn’t meet Akil’s self-expectations. His 2nd season showed dramatic improvement with 820 runs @ 35.65 and chipping in with 15 wickets with his medium pace bowling.

Post-Cambridge and now residing in London, Akil linked with Wembley CC in the Middlesex County Cricket League for the 2020-2022 seasons. He had 1422 runs across 47 games in that period with 2021 his standout summer with 910 runs @ 65.00.

Seeking a new club for next summer, Akil will be a good pick up for any UK club seeking top-order re-enforcement.
