Profile

Karnataka batsman Karun Nair had an outstanding debut first-class season in 2013-14, becoming an instrumental part of the side that swept to the Ranji and Irani titles. He hit centuries in three successive Ranji matches, including the quarter-finals and the semi-finals, and also hit the winning six that ended Karnataka's 15-year-wait for a Ranji title. The hundreds were even more impressive for someone who went four years without scoring a century at age-group level in his teens. Nair was good enough to make the Karnataka Under-19 team when he was 15, and steadily climbed the rungs before making the Ranji side in his early 20s.
