Profile

Vinod John had a brief but successful international career. A robust medium-pace bowler, John made his debut against New Zealand at Christchurch in 1982-83. The second Test highlighted his ability as he made inroads into the middle lower-order taking 5 for 60. In the return series in 1983-84, John consistently troubled the New Zealand batsman to capture 16 wickets in the three Tests. In the Lord's Test against England, his final Test match, he put in a wholehearted performance bowling 39.1 overs conceding a mere 98 runs, taking four wickets in the process. In the one-day format he had less success though he maintained a reasonable economy rate.
