Gearing up for the much-anticipated MLC Season 2, we at Seattle Orcas have unveiled our domestic player retentions. Four International player retentions were announced earlier and in addition to those, five domestic stars have been added to the roster for the upcoming MLC season. As the fans eagerly await the action-packed tournament, let's take a closer look at the talented players retained by the Orcas for the upcoming season.

Harmeet Singh

Hailing from the peninsula of India, Harmeet Singh brings a unique flair to the Orcas' bowling attack. Left arm magic is something that Harmeet is good at and we saw some of it during MLC season 1. His impressive record of 7 wickets in 7 innings at an average of 23.43 and an economy of 7.13 in the inaugural MLC season underscores his value as a key asset in our armory. Last year he did not get a chance to showcase his batting prowess, and he is geared up to do so this year if needed.

Nauman Anwar

From Pakistan, Nauman Anwar is a seasoned campaigner with a penchant for explosive starts. Having showcased his skills in T20 cricket with 775 runs in 35 matches, Anwar's performance in season 1, where he amassed 191 runs in 7 innings at a strike rate of 120.13 and an average of 27.29, solidifies his role as a vital cog in our batting lineup.

Shehan Jayasuriya

With roots in Sri Lanka, Shehan Jayasuriya adds versatility to our batting arsenal. A left-handed batter capable of anchoring the innings, Jayasuriya boasts an impressive T20 record, tallying 1729 runs in 88 matches. His contribution of 146 runs in 6 innings during season 1 highlights his ability to deliver at the highest level. He is a vital part of our top order.

Cameron Gannon

Standing tall at 199 centimeters, Cameron Gannon brings a formidable presence to the Orcas' bowling unit. A US citizen, Gannon's ability to extract bounce makes him a potent weapon for the Seattle Orcas. His performance in Season 1, where he claimed 11 wickets in 7 innings at an average of 17.36, underscores his knack for making crucial breakthroughs. He also adds value to the team with his gun fielding.

Shubham Ranjane

An explosive middle-order batter, Shubham Ranjane adds firepower to the Orcas' batting lineup. With a strike rate of 151.22 in Season 1, Ranjane is known for his ability to accelerate the run rate when needed. His proficiency with both bat and ball makes him a valuable asset in all facets of the game.

As the Seattle Orcas gear up for another exhilarating season of MLC action, the retention of these talented domestic players solidify our core. We now turn our attention to international signings and the domestic draft, with a strong core unit already at our disposal.
