Bio

Gurinder Sandhu played five matches in NSW’s successful 2015/16 Matador BBQs One Day Cup campaign, grabbing nine wickets at 13.55, including best figures of 4-29.

He also played seven Shield matches, taking eight wickets for the tournament. While this haul was below par for Sandhu, there were several periods where he bowled without luck and no doubt he will bounce back stronger after a tough season. 

During the Australia ‘A’ team’s winter tour of India, Sandhu tried his hand at some off-spin. 

He had only ever bowled it for fun, usually at the end of a net session, however the experiment proved a success and he was able to unveil his ‘tweakers’ at different stages of the Shield competition. 

A member of the NSW and Australian U/19 teams, Gurinder Sandhu was awarded a NSW Rookie Contract for the 2012/13 season. 

He played a handful of One Day and Sheffield Shield matches at the backend of that season, however, his performances were such that he won the Steve Waugh Medal as the NSW Blues Player of the Year. 

Sandhu also has a very talented younger brother Harmon, an all-rounder who represented the NSW Metro team at last summer’s U/19 National Championships. The pair play First Grade together for Fairfield-Liverpool. 

Sandhu has represented Australia twice in one-day internationals, his last appearance coming against England in January, 2015.
