Profile

Sadagoppan Ramesh made the grade after coming through the ranks. A string of notable performances with the India A team, culminating in a brilliant century against West Indies A pitch forked him into the national senior side. India A coach K Srikkanth strongly advocated his inclusion and the selectors, searching around for batsmen, decided to give the left-hand opener from Tamil Nadu the big break in his hometown of Chennai against Pakistan in 1999. Displaying two qualities that should be uppermost in any opening batsman - courage and big match temperament - Ramesh was an instant success. He played the pace of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shoaib Akthar and the spin of Saqlain Mushtaq and Mushtaq Ahmed with equal felicity, ran up a series of consistent scores including a couple of hundreds and suddenly India had unearthed a world class opening batsman.
