Beginning his career as an opening batsman for the Bombay team, he was regarded as one of the best openers after Sunil Gavaskar. But his domestic success didn’t show any magic on the international platform because of the limited opportunities he got. On the bowling front, he would sometimes deliver as an off spinner.

Coaching Career

He coached the under 19 Indian Cricket team during the England tour. He also played the role of a manager for the winning Indian team of the T 20 world cup in South Africa in the year 2007. He coached the Mumbai Indian team during the 2008 Indian Premier League tournament.

His action of laughing on camera when Harbhajan Singh slapped Sreesanth during the Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab match sparked a controversy. In 2016 he was selected as the head coach for Afghanistan’s National Team.
