Medium pacer Randhir Singh was one of several surprise choices in the Indian squad which toured England in 1982. He didn't score a run on the entire tour, but in fairness his batting opportunities were restricted to three first-class outings. Even his bowling chances were limited, and it was a most unhappy trip for him. After finishing wicketless on his ODI debut against England at Ahmedabad in 1981-82, he was brought back to play a game against West Indies two years later when regulars Kapil Dev and Madan Lal were absent. He picked up the wicket of Gordon Greenidge, bowling six overs for 30 runs. That remained the extent of
his international career, although he continued to play for several more seasons in the Ranji Trophy.
