Ankit is a extremely talented allrounder currently playing first class cricket in India for Madaya Pradesh state side.He made his debut for his first class side at just 18 years old. His best tally came in the 2015-16 season after taking time to establish his place in the side collecting 33 wickets that year including a career best of 13-108 against Andhra. Despite being a proven performer at first class level he has been looked at as a limited overs specialist.
He has played for the Deccan Chargers,Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL with success. Then in 2016 he was signed by the Rising Pune Supergiants for the base price of 10 Lakh. A stylish and quality left arm batsman he has a healthy average in the 30’s and a talented left arm spinner with excellent variations.
Ankit had his first UK stint in 2019, joining EAPL side, Mildenhall CC. His all-round contributions on/off the field were exceptional but his high-end spin bowling was outstanding. Not only able to contain (Econ 2.93) he was also a genuine strike weapon, taking 43 wickets @ 14.02. He also showed his ability with bat in hand, scoring 448 runs @ 24.89, making some valuable contributions along the way including an incredible 70 (40) in a T20 Cup final against Saffron Walden.
He is looking now for his second season in the UK and represents a high class option for any club looking for a quality all-rounder for next summer. Ankit will be travelling with his wife this summer.
