The son of Pankaj Roy, Pranob was a technically sound opening batsman whose chief virtue was patience. He displayed this in abundant measure in his first Test innings against England at Madras in 1981-82 when he batted 82 minutes for six runs. In the second innings he scored 60 not out when the match was already dead as a contest. He failed in the next Test but toured England in 1982. However he was all at sea and in 12 first-class innings scored only 174 runs. He was not considered thereafter but remained a batting stalwart for many years for Bengal,
for whom he scored 3130 runs (49.68) in the Ranji Trophy with a highest score of 206 not out against Assam in 1983-84.
