Profile

Probably the front-runner among India's upcoming left-arm spinners, Pragyan Ojha has converted the promise he showed at age-group levels to first-class level too. For good measure, he improved markedly in his second season, ending up among the top 10 bowlers by the end of the league stage of the 2006-07 Ranji Trophy, with 29 wickets at 19.89 in six games for Hyderabad. Consistent performances on a twin tour of Zimbabwe and Kenya earned him another shot with India A, against South Africa at home, and he took eight wickets in an innings victory in Delhi.
