India’s domestic cricket legend Rajinder Goel, often referred to as one of ‘India’s nearly men’, died on Sunday after a prolonged illness. Goel was 77. A left-arm spinner, Goel picked up a massive 750 first-class wickets in a career that spanned two and a half decades
Even as Ravichandran Ashwin has hogged most of the limelight in India’s good performances at home in recent times, his left-arm spinning partner Pragyan Ojha hasn’t been a mere supporting hand. In fact, Ojha has matched Ashwin’s performances in most games where they have featured together.
