Domestic career

He made his First-class debut against Punjab at Ludhiana in the 1993/94 season. He was an integral part of the North Zone team which lifted the Duleep and Deodhar Trophies in 1999-2000, and also captained Delhi for some time. He retired from all forms of cricket after playing his last match against Uttar Pradesh in December 2006.[1] Just before retirement, he began his Ranji season with a fine 152, his highest first-class score, against Tamil Nadu that bailed Delhi out of trouble, and effected a stumping against Uttar Pradesh's Praveen Kumar that helped his side gain a vital first-innings lead.

International Career

His international debut was in an ODI against Kenya at Nairobi Gymkhana in October 2000 in the ICC Knockout Trophy. His contribution in that match which India eventually won was a stumping and a catch. He went on to play in total 19 ODI's for India.

The last of which was against Australia at Fatorda Stadium in the 2001 series. His highest ODI score was a knock of 51 off 39 deliveries against Australia in the 1st ODI at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium which helped set up a match winning total of 315.

He made his Test debut against Zimbabwe at his home ground Feroz Shah Kotla in November 2000 as the match ended in drawn. He played only one more Test match against same opponent at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium. In two he took 6 catches and scored unbeaten 2 runs in an innings which he played.[1]

Coaching Career

He was named Delhi coach in 2007/08 season and was sacked 2013/14 season due his Kolkata Knight Riders commitments. During this period he led them to a Ranji Trophy triumph in 2007-08 season to end a 16-year title drought. He was appointed the assistant coach of the IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders in 2009.[2]

In September 2014, he was re-appointed as the head coach of the Delhi's Ranji Trophy side for 2014/15 season. [3]
