Senuran “Sen” is a high-end and emerging all-rounder from Durban, South Africa. A classy left-handed Top Order Batsman, Sen is also a clever and very economical left-arm Orthodox spinner. Having been schooled at Clifton College in Durban, Sen has been a prominent feature in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Provincial teams from the age 12 right through to the current Men’s Provincial side. After a breakout summer in 2014-15, whereby he collected back-to-back hundreds against Northerns & Eastern Province respectively, with the first being a marathon 104* (288) in almost 7 hours at the crease, an impressive effort for the then 20 year old.
Having had an inevitable early career trough, Sen’s form picked up towards the end of the 2015-16 summer and led him to the decision to continue playing throughout the year by venturing to the UK for the first time in 2016. Following a dreadful start to the summer with the bat, Sen really found his feet 2nd half of the summer and helped Brockhampton CC on their charge to the Birmingham Div 1 title.
Upon his return home, Sen forced his way into the Dolphins side and was a standout, producing a class all-round performance, with 840 runs & 36 wickets in the First Class competitions. The nett result of such a stellar performance was an invitation to the National Academy in winter 2017.
Come summer 2018, Sen joined Ramsbottom Cricket Club off the back of an outstanding domestic season, which resulted in South Africa A selection. Whilst his stint was shortlived, his impact on and off the field was felt by the club with 481 runs @ 60.13 and 28 wickets @ 11.53 in just 11 games.
We were ecstatic to see Sen receive his maiden international call up for South Africa’s tour to India. He finished the series having played 2 Tests and sits with a career Test batting average of 49.00 currently, not to mention his first Test wicket was Virat Kohli Caught & Bowled.
Sen returned to the UK in 2022, returning to Ramsbottom, piling on 1157 runs and bagging 61 wickets in 26 games in a fantastic summer and the club.
Eager to continue his develop in to a consistent and world-class all-rounder, Sen is seeking to join an ambitious Premier League club for next summer that need a top order Batsman capable of taking the ball away from the right-hander with high-quality, left-arm spin.
