Nirun Raju

Name:              Nirun Raju, a.k.a  “Simbah”
Role:                Wicket Keeper, Middle/Top order bat
Pedigree:         Gold medalist and National record holder in India*.
Fav Stroke:      Going over the covers
Weapon:          Can hit hard.

Nirun is a hard hitting top/middle order bat. When in form, he is tough to get out and can dispatch the ball to all parts of the ground. He can hit the ball quite hard, long and induce pain. 2010 season saw him keep the wickets and provide the team with some keeping options. Keeping the wickets, he makes sure the batsman is on his toes and outside the field he ensures the other team behaves by lobbing unreturnable zingers. Nirun is another one of HCC’s good tennis players who was awarded a scholarship at his grad school.

The LOL part: Nirun would rather bat than keep, hit the ball hard than defend. But, he is willing to work for his runs and shed both blood and sweat in the process. He is in process of coaching Deepak H as a wicket keeper J.  Oops almost forgot to mention – absolutely loves to eat fish !!!!

Records & Stats:
Best partnership for
7. 62 (vs Bengals 2, Deepak H 30, Nirun 24)

HCC club record holder for 7th wicket partnership with Deepak H
