Praveen Kumar honed his reputation as a man of many parts: A fast bowler with the ability to toil away on unresponsive Indian wickets who can double up as a carefree hitter down the order and as a surprise opener. Beginning his career in the Uttar Pradesh Under-19 team alongside RP Singh, Piyush Chawla, and Suresh Raina, he soon graduated to first-class cricket and shone on his Ranji Trophy debut, picking up nine wickets against Haryana. Kumar was key to UP winning the title in his first Ranji season, taking 41 wickets and scoring 368 runs. His consistency - 90 wickets in two first-class seasons - earned him a call-up to the India A squad touring Kenya in 2007.

Kumar excelled with both bat and ball in a triangular one-day tournament involving India A, Sri Lanka A and Kenya, winning the Man-of-the-Series award. He continued his fine run in the Challenger Trophy, during which he received his maiden call-up to the national squad for the first two ODIs against Pakistan. Another strong Ranji Trophy series, including eight wickets in an innings during the final, earned him a spot in India's 16-man squad for the CB Series in Australia.

BRISBANE, Reuters: India ended their tour of Australia on a high note when they beat the hosts by nine runs on Tuesday to win their best-of-three finals series 2-0.

Sachin Tendulkar scored a superb 91 and paceman Praveen Kumar went on to capture four wickets as the tourists followed up Sunday's six-wicket win in Sydney with a thrilling victory at the Gabba in Brisbane.

The Australians, who also lost last year's tri-series finals at home to England, recovered from a terrible start to give themselves a glimmer of hope when James Hopes (63) and Matthew Hayden (55) made half-centuries, only to come up short.
