Profile

In a country starved of genuinely quick bowlers, Varun Aaron grabbed the headlines when he hit 153 kph during the 2010-11 Vijay Hazare Trophy final against Gujarat. Hailing from Jharkhand, Aaron has been part of the MRF Pace Academy in Chennai since he was spotted by a talent scout at the age of 15. However, his career has been marred with frequent injuries. Two stress fractures of the back soon after his Ranji Trophy debut in the 2008-09 season for Jharkhand, a back injury that kept him out of India's tour to Australia in 2011-12 before a recurrence kept him out of competitive cricket for 15 months, and a leg injury in 2014 has had a severe impact on the pacer's Test career.
