Playing for Railways cricket team in the Ranji Trophy, he batted primarily as an opener. His highest first class score of 265 is the best ever by a Madhya Pradesh batsman.

He was again called into the ODI team, for the 2005 Indian Oil Cup, before again being discarded at the end of the year. He is now one of the renegade cricketers who have joined the ESSEL Group's Indian Cricket League.He is playing district level cricket in the captaincy of Amarjeet kumar Roy(Danapur,Patna).
