Place of birth:

Homegrown seamer

In October 2020 Birmingham-born Johal became the fifth home-grown Warwickshire men’s cricketer in the last two years to join the senior squad after an impressive spell with the Second XI and time training with the professionals.

Having recently studied at Sandwell College and Oldbury Academy, Johal has been a Bear since the under 11s age group and currently takes the new ball for West Bromwich Dartmouth in the Birmingham & District Premier League.

The all-rounder has featured heavily in the last two season for the Second XI as well as featuring for Staffordshire.

“Throughout last winter and ahead of this recent season, Manraj has put himself forward for extra sessions, but he has also shown an understanding of how a fast bowler should prepare by dedicating a lot of time to his strength and conditioning.”

Ian Westwood

Second XI Coach

Johal moved to West Bromwich Dartmouth CC in 2018 from Olton & West Warwickshire CC, which is also the first club of Henry and Ethan Brookes. He was given the new ball later that season and has taken 60 First XI wickets at an average of 20.7 to date

Four years ago Johal overcame a major set-back in his development in being deselected from the EPP.

However, his reaction impressed all by winning his place back in the following year after having an excellent season in the county age groups and in the additional skill set groups.
