Suyash is a highly talented young Batsman from Goa in India. An attacking right-hander who predominantly bats middle order but prefers Top 4 in club cricket, he is also a capable right-arm medium pace bowler. A junior star for Goa through the age groups, he came through the regions U14 through to U19 sides and was a key contributor with bat and ball all the way through his age-based cricket.

Suyash was rewarded for his excellent 2016-17 Inter-State performance with a List A debut at 19 for the senior Goa state side in the 2016/17 Vijay Hazare Trophy, scoring 27 (21) against a stacked Bengal side. He has gone on to represent Goa on 24 occasions in one-day cricket.

In summer 2018-19, Suyash was selected to make his Ranji Trophy debut for Goa and played 6 straight games, only yielding one half-century but a number of good starts. Whilst he would rue the lack of conversion of starts, the Goa coaching staff saw enough to know he is worth sticking with. His attacking play was not unnoticed following an excellent start to his Goa T20 career, averaging just shy of 40, he was shortlisted in the 2019 IPL auction and ultimately selected for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, for whom he played 10 IPL matches for across the 2022/23 editions.

Suyash does have UK experience Having played a little cricket in the UK as an amateur, with short stints at Lohana CC in Middlesex, scoring 543 runs in 6 games including 3 hundreds (133 vs Tower Hamlets, 102 vs SKLPC and a best of 149 vs Bessborough). This is accompanied by a couple of big tons in the Elliot Davis league on Sundays.

Seeking a return to the UK in 2024 as a full blown professional , Suyash will be a great pick up for a UK club seeking a gun top order Batsman who can contribute with some clever seamers for this summer.
