Profile

The right arm off-spinning allrounder from the Punjab had a promising introduction to one-day cricket, and was a member of the 1996 World Cup squad. In the aftermath of the loss to Sri Lanka, he was discarded, and despite consistent strong performances on domestic cricket, has mysteriously failed to catch the selector's eye subsequently. Schooled in the south, he moved to the Punjab after failing to break into a strong Tamil Nadu line-up. As an offspinner he flights the ball well, and enjoys variation. He is always economical, and hard to get away. He is a solid bat, usually at No. 7, but has been known to open. In 1998-99, he moved from Punjab to Rajasthan, where he captained the team with some success. Seemingly unable to settle, he returned to Tamil Nadu in the 1999-2000 season where he was their top wicket-taker in the Ranji trophy.
