Suman is a talented all-rounder based in London but originally from Nepal. A diminutive Right-handed Top-Order Batsman, he is a skilful and somewhat under utilised leg-spinner. A solid Top order Batsman, he has a compact technique and sound temperament but with the capacity to go through the gears. His Leg-Spin is accurate and not only does he give it a good “rip”, he has excellent variation.

Born in Hong Kong, Suman started playing Cricket in Nepal. He re-located to the UK in 2006 and ever since has played in good standards of club cricket every season, having played in the Nottinghamshire Premier League, Staffordshire Premier League, South Nottinghamshire League Division A, Bassetlaw Cricket Championship League in Nottinghamshire, Northern Premier League in Lancashire and Kent League.

Suman has also played in Nepal’s National Domestic Competition during some of the winters, regularly training and playing with and against Nepal’s current International players. He has also received interest from Hong Kong about potentially linking with them in the not too distant future. Suman has also represented British Army Cricket who regularly play against County 2nd XIs and MCCUs. He has also played club cricket in NZ, India, Australia and Hong Kong.

In summer 2021, Suman joined Langley Mill United cc in the ECB Derbyshire Premier League, he put in a solid shift, scoring 509 runs @ 25.45 and chiming in with 16 wickets @ 35.56. Suman has 1205 runs @ 43.04 / 33 wickets @ 25.70 across all formats for the summer. He backed this up with 1877 runs in 2022.

Suman will be a great pick up for a club seeking a talented top-order batsman that can genuinely play as a front line spinner as well for next summer.
