Ready for the call

Sunny was born in India but grew up in Birmingham and is another exciting product of the Bears academy. A skilful left-arm spinner who made an excellent impression in Bears junior cricket, in 2017 he took the step-up to first-team cricket in his stride with two early five-fors.

Sunny has a great temperament for a spin-bowler, unfazed by attacking batsmen, and great control which will be a big asset when the T20 call comes. He is still to figure in the shortest format but Jeetan Patel, Josh Poysden and many others at the Bears over the years have shown how effective the slower bowlers can be in T20.
