Profile

Of medium height and build, Rajinder Singh Ghai was one of several new ball bowlers tried out to supplement the seam attack in the mid eighties when the one day game became fashionable in India following the World Cup triumph. A willingness to work hard and the ability to move the ball appreciably helped Ghai to make the grade, but he found his lack of pace and and his slight build a handicap and never could really succeed at the international level. He went on the tour of Sri Lanka in 1985 but was played only in the first class games. He also was a member of the Indian team to Sharjah the same year. He represented Punjab in the Ranji Trophy for over a decade and was one of their leading wicket-takers. A hard hitting tail end batsman, he had a highest score of 114 not out against Services in 1986-87. ( Partab Ramchand)
