His international career may be less than ten matches old but Hemang Badani has already made a remarkable impression. An ice-cool temperament under pressure separates him from several of his age peers as he unmistakably revealed in the one-day series against Zimbabwe. Badani's unbeaten 58 at Cuttack and bustling 77 at Rajkot were both crafted in the face of precarious circumstances, the former knock winning him a Man of the Match award in just his fourth game. Each time there was not an iota of extravagance as he stealthily accumulated his runs. Badani carves the ball around with a touch of elan, discriminating in favour of the gaps, and his front foot drive played on the rise through cover is especially pleasing.

Badani made his first class debut against Kerala in the 1996-97 season following a fine showing for India Under-19 against South Africa at home. Before long he was stepping up a gear, playing for India A in the SAARC one-day tournament in Dhaka in 1998. His selection for the Asia Cup last May was not surprising, coming just after two elegant knocks of 162 & 63 in the Ranji Trophy semifinal against Mumbai. Badani looks ready to cut his teeth in the Test arena but a surfeit of quality operators in the middle order renders the likelihood slightly distant. His occasional orthodox slow left armers and fleet-footedness in the field do no harm at all to his prospects.
