Amit Kandarp Shukla (born 2 January 1985, in Nairobi, Kenya) is a Kenyan cricketer. Shukla has represented the Kenya in List A cricket, and also the Kenya A cricket team.[1] He was a part of the Southern Stars squad in the Sahara Elite League,[2] and now is a part of the Kongonis team that takes part in the revamped structure in the East African tournaments (East Africa Premier League and East Africa Cup).[3] A number of good performances more or less brought him a call-up, but it was mostly due to the mass exodus of senior players, a number of them after refusing central contracts offers to them by the board. It was the squad to face the UAE in the second round of the 2011-13 ICC Intercontinental Cup and the 2011-13 ICC Intercontinental Cup One-Day, with the latter being much significant as it served as qualification for the 2015 Cricket World Cup.[4] He played just the one List A match against UAE, where he was not required to bat and conceded 17 runs off his three overs for no wicket. The opponent won the match by 4 wickets.[5]
