Profile

A string of notable performances on the domestic circuit propelled Vijay Yadav into the Indian team in the early 90s. A capable wicketkeeper with an excellent record of catches - keeping to Kapil Dev and Chetan Sharma for Haryana must have helped - Yadav was also a lower-order batsman who liked to score runs at a nifty rate. Indeed his batting and keeping seemed to be a natural for limited overs cricket and he did play in a good number of such games for the country in the early and mid 90s. He was given the big break in the one off Test against Zimbabwe in 1993 and performed creditably both behind the stumps and in front of them.
