Profile

Vinay Kumar is a bowler in the Venkatesh Prasad mould - relying more on outswingers, legcutters and accuracy, than on outright pace. After the retirement of former India players Dodda Ganesh and David Johnson, Vinay became a key member of the Karnataka pace attack. First picked for the Ranji side in 2004-05, he quickly established himself by taking more than 20 wickets in each of his first three seasons. He soon developed an inswinger as a variation to his stock ball, resulting in a superb 2007-08 season, in which he was the second-highest wicket-taker in the Ranji Trophy. That convinced the Royal Challengers Bangalore to give him a contract, and he has frequently filled their fifth bowler's slot.
