One of the earliest products of the MRF Pace foundation, Banerjee was included in the Indian team admist high expectations. He went on the tour of Australia in 1991-92, where it was thought he would succeed given the hard and bouncy tracks Down Under. He played in the third Test at Sydney as the fourth seamer when India took the field without a specialist spinner. Banerjee bowled only in the first innings picking up three wickets for 47, those of Mark Waugh, Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh. He then figured in the Benson & Hedges World Series that followed without any conspicuous success. Banerjee was also selected for the tour of South Africa the next season but did not play a single Test and met with only modest success in the one dayers and the first-class games and was a forgotten man after that. The fact that he bowled short and wide and could not bowl long spells were perhaps the reasons for his international career being brief.
Banerjee, however, continued to play first-class cricket with some success. His best bowling in the Ranji Trophy was been 7 for 18 (12 for 78 in the match) against Tripura in 1989-90.
