Playing Role


In a little under two years, Rahul Sanghvi played in 10 ODIs. He did reasonably well too, and his best bowling figures were notched up against Zimbabwe in the tri-series in India in 1998. He kept the run hungry Australian batsmen on a leash in the Coca Cola Cup final at Sharjah the same year. Then, as suddenly as he made it to the national side, he was dropped and forgotten for more than two years. However, the left-arm spinner has always adopted a never say die approach. A string of notable performances for Delhi and North Zone saw him make his debut in the first Test against Australia in 2000-01, but he was immediately dropped in the aftermath of the defeat.

An orthodox spinner of the ball, Sanghvi has come up through the ranks having toured England in 1994 with the Indian Under-19 side. He is particularly impressive on batsman friendly pitches. Sanghvi, who learnt the finer points of the art from Bishen Singh Bedi, has all the attributes - line, length, control of turn and flight and enough variety - to command a regular place in the national side.
