Playing Role

Batting Allrounder

An allrounder from Kwa-Zulu Natal, Senuran Muthusamy developed into one of the most versatile players at Dolphins, batting in the lower middle-order and bowling left-arm spin, to catch the attention of the national selectors. Although not a huge turner of the ball, Muthusamy's consistency and craftiness brought him success.

Muthusamy is from the generation of Born Frees, those South Africans whose birth coincided with the year democracy came to the country - 1994. As a result, Muthusamy was among those who had access to equal opportunities from childhood, and he made full use of them. He was schooled at Clifton, an independent institution in Durban, from his first grade, where he had access to high-quality coaching and facilities and thrived. He featured for provincial school teams from U-11s to U-19s, but did not want to rely on cricket as a career. Muthusamy completed a degree in media and marketing, but cricket had other plans.

He became a Dolphins regular in 2016-17, where batting - inspired by Kumar Sangakkara - was his strong suit, but he slowly started to focus more on turning his arm over. Muthusamy's breakthrough season was the summer of 2017-18, when he scored a career-best 181 opening the batting against Knights and later moved down the order to concentrate on his bowling. He eventually finished second on the franchise wicket-takers' list 33 wickets at 26.54 and starred at Dolphins' awards, where he was awarded four prizes including Player of the Year.

He was included in South Africa's annual spin camp to India in 2018 and the South African A side's tour to the country ahead of the senior side's visit in September-October 2019, when Muthusamy was named in the Test squad. He made his Test debut against India in Visakhapatnam in October 2019, and Virat Kohli became his first Test wicket.
