In an extremely brief Test career, Vivek Razdan bowled in just two innings for India on the 1989 tour of Pakistan, taking five wickets in the second of them in a fairytale beginning but he faded away just as swiftly as he had risen into the limelight. Having cut his teeth at the MRF Pace Foundation, Razdan, then 20, was selected for the trip to Pakistan on the basis of just two first class appearances, one each in the Duleep and Irani Trophies. After making his Test debut in virtual anonymity in the second Test at Faislabad, Razdan came roaring back, using some disconcerting movement off the wicket to claim 5-79 in the final Test at Sialkot and help India to a 74-run first innings lead.

Sadly, that was to be the extent of Razdan's Test opportunities and although going on the subsequent trip to New Zealand, he was not played in the Tests and took just one first class wicket on the entire tour. His third and last ODI against Sri Lanka was at home in the 90-91 season during which, based in Madras as an MRF trainee, he represented Tamil Nadu in the Ranji Trophy. Razdan was a key member of the Delhi squad that lifted the Ranji Trophy in 1991-92, making two hundreds, against Services off only 96 balls, and in the quarterfinal against Bengal, besides a crucial 93 in the final against his former team, Tamil Nadu. Apart from his exploits with the bat, he also grabbed 23 wickets at 25.82. But he soon slipped backstage and into anonymity, with his first-class career coming to a full stop two seasons later. He has since taken up television commentary. (Sankhya Krishnan)
