Jiniv Joshi is an attacking but classy Right-handed Top Order batsman from Mumbai who has been a regular feature in a variety of Mumbai’s Elite Division competitions. A clean-striker, he makes batting look ridiculously effortless and in summer 2019-20, ventured to Sri Lanka to play in their Domestic First Class season, linking with Sebastianites CAC, playing 6 first class fixtures
Jiniv is also very capable of bowling some Right-arm medium-pace but despite being a solid contributor in the Elite division competitions, could never quite find his way in to the very strong Mumbai set up, hence he head south to Sri Lanka.
His stay in SL was brief but positive with a couple of good starts but an excellent 107 (86) against Kalutara Town Club was a clear highlight. His hundred came on Day 1, before lunch, with 6 fours and an a brutal 9 sixes.
Jiniv has had 2 previous seasons of experience in the UK. A first up 2017 stint with Easington CC in Durham, scoring 855 runs @ 38.86 and chiming in with 22 wickets @ 22.95 was a good start. His 2022 stint with Torquay in Devon was exceptional with an incredible 1045 runs @ 80.38 in 21 innings with three hundreds adn five half-centuries.
Seeking a return to the UK in 2023, Jiniv will be an excellent signing for any club seeking a genuine top order threat that can contribute with the ball as well. Jiniv is an ECB Level 2 coach.
