Royston Dias

Royston Dias is an Indian cricketer who plays for Mumbai in Domestic cricket. Born in Thane, Maharashtra, he is a left-handed batsman and a left-arm medium pace bowler. Royston was brought by Delhi Daredevils in 2013 in Indian Premier League. Royston started playing cricket at the age of 17 which is relatively late if one has to make a career and dream of representing Mumbai! Majority of cricketers start playing cricket from a very early age when they are just 5-7 yrs old but Royston rose through the ranks very quickly thanks to his exceptional skills with the ball in hand!

Within a year or two from the time he started playing Cricket, Royston went on to make his Top Division Debut for Mumbai at the age of just of 18. Cricketers spend years playing just to reach at the Top Division but Royston’s rise through the ranks was certainly commendable. After performing consistently and impressing one and all, Royston also donned the prestigious Mumbai Badge making his U19 Debut for Mumbai followed by representing Mumbai U23 before finally making his Senior Team Debut in 2016 vs Punjab.

At the age of just 19, Royston made his presence felt in the Mumbai Ranji Nets surprising none other than the God of Cricket – Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. Being called into the Ranji nets, 19-year-old Dias was asked to bowl to Mumbai players at the Wankhede. And his first ball to the batting maestro was a bouncer which he ducked but the ball hit his shoulder. Royston was bowling well to the Mumbai batters in nets and the next day he put up an impressive show vs Gujarat taking 4/62 , a fiery spell which included many bouncers making the Gujarat batsman duck and leave on multiple occasions!

Royston since beginning of time has been playing Top Division Club Cricket from Payyade Sports Club and Parkophene Cricketers and he has played in every major MCA Tournament in last one decade. From Kanga League to Purshottam Shield to Police Shield to Times Shield to T20 Mumbai, Royston has fifers and four-fers in almost each and every marquee tournament of Mumbai Cricket Association. In 2021, Royston also played overseas cricket in UK representing Tickhill Cricket Club in the Barnley & District Cricket League.

Making a comeback from injury this year, Royston looked in his elements bagging a brilliant fifer vs Mumbai Police Gymkhana in A Division Kanga League. Royston who idolizes Glenn Mcgrath and Zaheer Khan shared with Zoomcricket- “I Started off season training for the next season. My training consists of a lot of weight training and cardio. I am gradually planning to get started with skills as the season approaches. I had a few really good games this season including a fifer vs Mumbai Police Gymkhana in Kanga League, the Goal is to make a comeback to the Ranji Trophy with Mumbai this season. I want to contribute with the ball whenever i get an opportunity and make Mumbai proud again!
