Team history

Shiv Sagar Singh is an Indian cricketer, predominantly known for his stint on the domestic level. Born in Orissa in 1979, he represented West Bengal in the First-class and List A tournaments. He has also played in several T20 matches, notably while representing Royal Bengal Tigers in the defunct Indian Cricket League.

His stint in the ICL wasn’t particularly impressive, as he failed to perform consistently well for his team. In the other formats, however, he had a certain level of expertise which made him a valuable player to have in the starting XI.

He has played a total of 28 matches in List A and First-class formats. In the former case, he has taken 27 wickets with the best figure of 3/29, while in the latter, he took 45 wickets with his best figure being 4/47. Shiv Sagar Singh was a slow left-arm orthodox bowler, and proved to be a good spin option for the team.

Batting wise, he wasn’t quite impressive as he has scored less than 300 runs in both the formats.
