Vijay Dahiya

Vijay Dahiya

Born: 10 May 1973, Delhi
Major Teams: Delhi, India.
Known As: Vijay Dahiya
Batting Style: Right Hand Bat
Other: Wicket-Keeper


Ever since the exit of Nayan Mongia, Indian has not been able to produce a World class wicket keeper. Though Dhaiya was impressive in his debut in Sharjah but he has to improve a lot in order to become a regular feature in the Indian side. He is a useful bat also which is always an advantage to the team. 

A surprise inclusion for the ICC KnockOut tourney last October, Vijay Dahiya has acquitted himself favourably since becoming the fifth specialist keeper to don the gloves for India in sixteen months. Overlooked for the one-off Test at Dhaka, Dahiya returned to make his Test debut against Zimbabwe on his home ground at the Feroze Shah Kotla. Safe rather than spectacular behind the wickets, he looks to be a fixture in the side for the immediate future in both versions of the game.

In the limited opportunities he's got as a batsman, Dahiya has shown a pleasant inclination, even impatience, to get on with things. Not a clean hitter and not the most elegant in his methods, he can still get stuck into a few occasionally. A run-a-ball 35 in the Cuttack runchase against Zimbabwe is his most enduring contribution so far. A consistent performer on the domestic circuit, he was an integral part of the North Zone team which lifted the Duleep and Deodhar Trophies in the 1999-2000 season as also the Board President's XI which triumphed in the Wills Trophy. Dahiya, who made his first-class debut against Punjab at Ludhiana in 1993-94 as an opening batsman cum wicketkeeper, is presently captain of Delhi
