Bentley Heath Cricket Club Sunday XI squad

Sunday XI

Captain : Lahiru Weerasinghe

Medium pace bowler, lower order batsman.

Vice Captain : Trevor Goode

By far the most attractive player in the sunday squad and a real hero to his team mates. Famous for ability to use the word c**t over a hundred times during a match and a quite stunning caught and bowled which he really doesn't want to talk about. He is a consistant performer with both bat and ball and his figures never fail to raise a smile in the away dressing room. Trevor has introduced some real quality players to the team along side Foz, Amer and Niall.
Khuram Butt
Special K is an absolute one off! Mainly used as a bowler, k's ability to move the ball at pace is a real asset in the lower leagues. Has the ability to strike a long ball and score freely with the bat. Always gives 100% but certainly has a unique fielding style!
Craig Collis
Youngest in the long line of Collis' at Bentley Heath. A wicket keeper/Batsman who has cemented the gloves after some fine performances behind the stumps. A real consistent performer.
David Collis
Long time club member, Dave has returned after several years away from the club. A strong, talented opening batsman who has a wealth of experience. Patient, determined type, Dave is a proper batsman who is often the first in and last out. An important figure in the teams recent success.
Gary Collis
Former skipper Gaz is a real bentley heath legend in every sense of the word. A club member for 40 years, who still dishes out wicketkeeping master classes to many oppositions. A partnership building middle order batsman, who's presence in the team always lifts morale.
Rufus Francis
Rufus is never shy in offering advice to the skipper and his knowledge of the game and tactical genius has been the reason for many wickets over the years and has helped turn games from losing positions into wins. When asked to bowl Rufus will never disappoint offering up a variety of deliveries with Monty-like enthusiasm. Rufus is a steady lower order batsman who loves the challenge of batting out for a draw, he is also very accomplished when driving and without him, sons Rohan, Richard and nephew Shane would never make it to the games on time.
Shabaz Hussain
Easily the most classy batsman in the team, Shabz makes the game look effortless at times. Has a love of run scoring and a fine spinner too. Huge part of the teams success his recent years.
Shane Janjua
Big hitting top order batsman Shane burst onto the scene in 2008 with a quick fire 90 to get the Heath’s Twenty20 campaign off to a winning start. Known for his laid back attitude on and off the field and also for his heavy bats Shane is always willing to share his famous willows with anyone in need of some batting assistance. Shane is captain for the Sunday XI.
Terry Jones
A loyal long term member of the 2s, Terry is one of the few old guard to still remain. Year after year he has held onto his place in the side. Now more of a bowler, his unusual style causes the undoing of many. Still a handy lower order batsman who is often used as the skippers go to man.
Foz Mirza
A sunday player that occasionally appears in the league. A good off side batsman who can score runs when needed. Also bowls left arm spin, with the change of angle often causing the undoing of many.
Sannan Mohammad
A small Chanderpaul like figure, Sannan plays a vital role in accumulating runs at the top of the order. Some would say he has “more blocks than Legoland” and “more leaves than a tree” , however his grit and determination along with his elegant strokeplay is just what a batting line up full of big hitters requires. He is also a more than a handy fielder and will always do a job with ball in hand he will use his pace when called upon.
Jason Nandlal
Jason is the second longest serving player at Bentley Heath having debuted in 1985 and has played every season since. His batting has entertaining potential and his slow off breaks undo many an experienced opposition batsman. Jason's Mum can still attract players out of hiding when she does the teas.
Joe Radley
Despite a tough run of form with the bat, Joe's place in the middle order has been cemented for several years. A strong attacking batsman, with buckets loads of ability. A real team player and the finest gully fielder you could ever hope to find. 
Shamus Raja
With a team full of all-rounders Raja is probably the most versatile of the bunch. Batting at the top, middle or even lower order Raja never looks out of place. Bowling 80mph off 10 yards or spinning the ball a yard (off two bounces) he is often the go to bowler when things are not going to plan. One aspect Raja must look to improve on is his ground fielding however he more than makes up for this with a throwing arm that the great Walter Johnson would have been proud of.
Dylan Ransi
The boy with a really long run-up but got dropped 3 times in a friendly match.
Dave Tagg
Appointed 2XI captain in 2013 after a year as vice skipper. Free scoring opening batsman and safe pair of hands in the slips. Never short of something to say......!
David Wilson
Mature player who has had a history of playing for friendly sides but I did play some club cricket but at 2nd XI only.
Hassan Zeb
Full of potential, 'the Hass man' never fails to disappoint! Hassan is often called upon to slow the oppositions run rate when bowling and to up the batting run rate with willow in hand. However the opposite is usually the reality...
