H Sundaram played seven first-class games for Tamil Nadu as a wicketkeeper and was considered one of the finest in Tamil Nadu at the time. V Ramnarayan, a former team-mate, remembered his unusual left-handed style of keeping. "His left-handedness showed in his keeping, as he often gathered with one hand, the left hand", Ramnarayan wrote in his blog Stumped. "It often produced spectacular results, especially in the form of leg-side stumpings. He loved to stand up to the medium pacers and remove the bails in a flash. In the 1970s, he was regarded as the best stumper in Tamil Nadu, and even played for the state briefly, until one fine morning, miffed at being overlooked in favour of the young Bharat Reddy, he wrote to the cricket association asking them not to consider him any more for selection."
