Mohit is a young and talented first class middle order batsman who’s cricketing career started for his state side Vidarbha at the early age of just 12 years old when he was selected in the side’s under 13 side. His career has come through the youth ranks and now is a consistant performer for Vidarbha since making his first class debut in the 2018-19 season. He was the back bone of the Vidarbha side’s middle order scoring 370 runs in 8 matches when they won the Ranji Trophy and the Irani Trophy in the 2018-19 season.
Mohit has shown his leadership qualities captaining Vidarbha state teams since under 16 level and has also captained the under 19 amnd under 23 sides. He guided the under 23 side winning the Ck. Naydu trophy and the men’s one day tournament. He was a heavy run scorer at both under 19 and under 23 levels and was among the top 5 run scorers in India. In the 2019-20 season he scored his maiden first class hundred against Rajasthan winning the man of the match for his 138 off 228 balls. He also scored a very important 37 against the Rest of India team which included the likes of Ajinka Rahane, Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari in a very important Irani trophy game.
Mohit has a solid batting defence with a vast range if hitting abilities when required. Mohit was also a very useful leg spin bowler in youth cricket and is waiting for his chance to show off his bowling talents at first class level.
Mohit joined Wem CC for the 2021 summer in the Birmingham & District Premier League Division Two. In his first season and the highest level the club have achieved to date, they finished at the pointy end of the table and Mohit put in a solid all-round performance, scoring 676 runs @ 29.39 and his leggies proved very handy indeed, bagging 27 wickets @ 18.70.
Mohit returned to the UK in 2022, linking with Penrith CC in the ECB Northern Premier League. A late start/early finish wasn’t ideal as he struggled to adapt to the northern conditions, heading home with 325 runs @ 21 wickets to his name.
Better for the experience Mohit will be a good signing for any club next season offering a competitive standard of cricket.
