Profile

Vikram Rathour never looked an assuring presence in the six Tests where he opened the batting. This was a pity really because he appeared to be a fine prospect early in his career. Plucky without being dour, and a fluent driver of the ball, the bearded Rathour was the bulwark of Punjab's batting through the early nineties. Among the chosen few to visit England in 1996, he made tons of runs in the tour games (759 at 58.38 to be precise), including an unlaboured 165 against Worcestershire as well as a fifty in the third ODI at Old Trafford. But he flopped in the Tests with a highest of 20 in four innings, the awayswinging ball invariably edged to the slips exposing limitations in his technique.
