Aron Nijjar is a left-arm-spinner who made his debut for Essex against Leicestershire in 2015. In the same year, he made his list-A debut against Hamsphire. Nijjar is still not a permanent member of the Essex squad and has figured only in 7 first-class matches. Nijjar's father is of Indian origin and it was a dream come true for him when Essex received a tour match against India before the India-England Test series. He got the important wicket of India's upcoming sensation KL Rahul in the match. In this season, Nijjar will be looking to cement his place in the Essex playing eleven.
