Profile

After well over a decade of performing commendably on the domestic circuit, Dhiraj Parsana was picked for two Tests against West Indies in 1978-79. But he could not succeed either with the bat or the ball and was discarded after managing one run and one wicket. This was surprising for Parsana was one of the leading allrounders in the Ranji Trophy competition. A more than useful left-hand middle-order bat and a capable left-arm seamer who could swing the ball both ways - and in helpful conditions, considerably - Parsana had an excellent record in the national competion scoring 2285 runs (28.56) and picking up 196 wickets (22.08). An expert on the preparation of wickets, Parsana served on the pitches and grounds committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
