Ashutosh is a dynamic batsman currently playing first class cricket in India for Chhatisgarh state side. A proven performer at first class level with 4 hundreds and 6 fifties to his name to date at a healthy average over 30. He has also performed well at the One day format averaging just short of 40. At club level Ashutosh is a more than capable off break bowler but with the likes of WSX spinner Sumit Ruikar who dominates Uk club cricket in his states ranks chances to perform with the ball have been limited. But has taken some very important wickets in the shorter forst class formats.
In the 2017-18 Ranji Trophy he was the leading run scorer for Chhattisgarh with 467 runs in just 6 matches. In July 2018, he was named in the squad for the India Red for the 2018-19 Duleep Trophy. He was also the leading run scorer for his state in the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy with 211 runs in 6 matches. He ventured over to the Uk for the 2022 season to play in the ECB Northern league for Netherfield CC but his season was cut short due to a shoulder injury whilst running between the wickets.
Ashutosh returned to England in 2023, signing for Mildenhall CC in the ECB East Anglian Premier League and was very impressive, scoring 752 runs @ 44.24 in one of the country’s best leagues. He also chipped in 21 wickets with a best of 5-55.
Seeking a return to the UK next summer, Ashutosh will be a top pick for any club seeking a classy top order batsman that can contribute with the ball as well.
