    Profile

    An all-rounder who plays first-class cricket for Mumbai, Abhishek Nayar has also represented India, though he didn’t get many opportunities at the international level. For Mumbai, his right-arm medium pace has been more than useful, while his left-handed batting is well equipped to graft as well as hit powerfully. His ability to play long innings and deliver under pressure in big matches at the domestic level has held him in good stead, with a brilliant 259 for West Zone in a Duleep Trophy semi-final against North Zone and a 243 for Mumbai against Rajasthan in November 2011 being prime examples. Nayar also played an important part in Mumbai’s triumphant 38th Ranji Trophy title with a score of 99 in the final. Nayar has had some decent outings in the IPL too, and was part of the Mumbai Indians squad for the first three seasons. With the re-forming of the teams in 2011, Kings XI Punjab picked him up for $US800,000.
