Profile

In the mid 1990s, Robin Singh was viewed as a long-term prospect by many. He had the records to back him up too for he was Delhi's leading wicket taker, striking up a particularly good combination with Atul Wassan. Given this background, his selection in the Indian team for the tour of New Zealand in 1998-99 was not exactly a surprise. But with Srinath, Prasad and Mohanty already in the side, it was on the cards that Robin's opportunities would be limited. But the enthusiastic youngster did well enough in the first-class matches to force his way into the side for the third Test, the day after his 19th birthday. In a high scoring drawn game, Robin did reasonably well picking up two wickets in the first innings and one in the second. But he became a victim of the selectors' hiring and firing policy and that remained the extent of his international career.
