Name:Pad Venkatraman
Batting:R/H Middle Order
Bowling:R/H Fast

Pad joined us in 2011 but has quickly fitted in since his debut. With an ability to bowl a very heavy ball he could well find himself opening the bowling this year. Add to this a tendency to hit the ball very hard while batting, and we think Pad is a very useful acquisition indeed. It helps that he is a very nice bloke of course! This brings its own problems for Pad, since Matt Bulpitt has a tendency to give him a bear-hug at any time in a match, which is beginning to put a strain on Pad\'s slender frame!

Pad is an avid fan of Tony the Tiger from the Frosties adverts, and will provide an impromptu impression of him whenever anyone does anything worthy of merit.

He has also produced a tea with a decidedly spicy edge to it, much to the delight of his teammates, although we suspect that Mrs Pad was the brains behind the cooking.
