Bio

Ashok Dinda was one of many Indian pacemen hoping to fill the void left by Zaheer Khan in India’s Test squad. With plenty of international cricket under his belt, Dinda was hoping to sway the selectors in to making his Test debut, unfortunately that never came.

Dinda’s international breakthrough came against Sri Lanka in 2009, where he took the prized scalp of Sanath Jayasuriya in Nagpur. He enjoyed success against the same team two years later, finishing with a career best 4-19 in Pallekele. The seamer has been a steadying foil to India’s spinners, and has enjoyed success in most of his nine T20 appearances for India. His most recent match saw him rip through the Pakistani middle order to finish with a match winning 3-36.

Dinda did not enjoy the same success in the ODI format, picking up just 12 wickets from 13 appearances. His economy rate was far too high for an opening bowler, and his average was above 50.
