Profile

Coming into the Indian team on the strength of his consistent performances in the Ranji Trophy competition, Rajinder Pal was a disappointment in the only Test he played. But to be fair to him, the pitch at the Brabourne stadium was a batting beauty and Rajinder Pal had little chance to succeed on such a surface. The well built medium-pacer bowled 11 overs in the first innings and only two in the second. He continued to do well in the National competition for Delhi and Southern Punjab but failed to catch the eye of the selectors. In a first-class career that stretched for 20 years, Rajinder Pal took 339 wickets (21.88). In the Ranji Trophy alone, he captured 298 wickets (18.88).
