Profile

One of several young players tried out as Kapil Dev's opening partner in the 80s, Arun forced his way into the Indian team by some splendid performances in the domestic circuit. But he played only in two Tests against Sri Lanka in 1986-87 with modest success, though he was the most successful bowler with three for 76 in his first Test. A burly right arm medium pace bowler and a hard hitting middle order batsman, Arun played with much success for Tamil Nadu and was a prominent member of the Ranji Trophy winning side in 1987-88. In the Duleep Trophy, his best performance was the record sixth wicket partnership of 221 with WV Raman for South Zone against West Zone in the 1986-87 final, his own share being 149.
