    Pragyan Ojha’s decision to shift base from Bhubaneswar to Hyderabad during his school days in search of better cricketing opportunities has turned out to be master move. The left-arm spinner’s progress and temperament continue to impress the critics. His second and third seasons with Hyderabad in Ranji Trophy and with South Zone in Duleep Trophy fetched him 59 wickets. It earned him a place for India’s A tours to Zimbabwe and Kenya in 2007-2008, though he had to wait until November 2009 for his Test debut, against Sri Lanka in Kanpur. It wasn’t until the 2011 home Test series against the West Indies that he finally managed to break the shackles and make a mark of his own, becoming the fastest Indian left-arm spinner to reach 50 Test wickets. He was famously involved in the last-wicket partnership with VVS Laxman in the 2010 Mohali Test match against Australia that earned India a sensational victory. The winner of the Purple Cap in 2009 for being the highest wicket-taker in the IPL that season while playing for Deccan Chargers, he will turn out for Mumbai Indians for the 2012 season.
