Profile

One of the best utility cricketers to represent the country, Karsan Ghavri rendered yeoman service to Indian cricket. He had a rather long run-up for a bowler of his pace but as a left-armer who could bowl bowh medium pace or slow, he frequently troubled batsmen, particularly with judicious use of a nippy bouncer. As a late-order batsman he was more than useful either holding one end up or going for his strokes. Ghavri displayed his allround skills in his first Test series against West Indies in 1974-75. He was rather unlucky to miss the dual tour of New Zealand and West Indies the following season. He was back in 1976-77 against New Zealand and England and was a regular member of the team till 1981. He did pretty well in the three Tests in Australia in 1977-78, scoring 64 in the only innings at Sydney and taking seven wickets in the match in the final Test at Adelaide.
