Profile

Despite doing well on his Test debut against New Zealand in his home town in 1969-70, that one outing remained the extent of Ajit Pai's international career. This was a pity for he was an accurate right-arm medium-pace bowler who brought the ball down from his tall frame. He was rewarded with his Test debut after doing well in domestic games, and took 2 for 29 from 17 overs, but bowled only two overs in the second innings. It was rather surprising that he was dropped and even more surprising that he was never considered again.
