    For someone who picked up the sport only at 17 years of age, Abhimanyu Mithun has made fairly good progress in the little time he has had since then. Of course, the big reason for the delay in hitting the cricket pitches is that Mithun was a discus thrower as a youngster. Unfortunately, he wasn’t much good at it. Fortunately, it turned out that he was quite good at hurling the cricket ball. Mithun is another of the players whose rise coincided with the Indian Premier League. South African coach of Royal Challengers Bangalore Ray Jennings took note of the paceman during the 2009 trials, calling him an ‘express bowler’, but Mithun wasn’t quite up there in his first IPL stint. But come the 2009-10 Ranji Trophy – his debut season – and Mithun proved just how good he could be, topping the Ranji table with 47 scalps including a haul of 11 wickets against Uttar Pradesh. Mithun has been in the Indian team occasionally, hovering in the fringes the rest of the time; always in the fray if one of the regulars picks up an injury (as Sreesanth did, leading to Mithun landing the India cap). He is tall at just over six feet, and though usually in the 135kmph zone, gets decent bounce off the deck.
