New Penrith professional comes “highly recommended

Date: Friday 9th February 2018

PENRITH Cricket Club have signed young Indian professional Ashwin Hebbar.

The 22-year-old right handed bat and medium pace bowler joins Penrith for the 2018 Northern Premier League season from the first class Andhra Pradesh side in southern India.

He comes highly recommended by Mannava Prasad — former Indian Test wicketkeeper and current chairman of India’s international selection panel. He is primarily a batsman, but also bowls.

He will not be involved in the IPL T20 tournament, so will be able to join Penrith from the start of the season.
