Profile

Left-arm spinner Hiren Varaiya was one of a handful of young players given a chance by selectors in 2006 and he rose to the challenge, taking a wicket with his first ball on debut against Canada. He struggled in one outing against Bangladesh but made amends with solid performances against other Associates and quickly established himself in the side with a string of good performances. He varies his pace intelligently, holding the odd ball back and like all bowlers of his kind in one-dayers, he forces the batsmen to play shots and so take risks.
