Profile

Given the brilliant start to his Test career, and the promise he held out, Surinder Amarnath's overall figures may be disappointing. But he was given a raw deal by the selectors. As the one classy left-hander in the side at the time, he could have been persevered with. Starting out as a schoolboy prodigy - his Ranji debut came when he was only 15 and made his mark first on the 1967 Indian schoolboys tour of England - Surinder continued to live up to this early potential by scoring a century on debut in an unofficial Test against Sri Lanka in 1975-76 and followed this up a few months later with a century on Test debut in New Zealand.
