Wisden overview
A left-arm spinner in the classical mould, Murali Kartik has long been on the fringe of the national team. He has a high arm action straight from the coaching manual, and has all the weapons in his armoury - the tantalising loop, the ability to extract sharp turn and bounce, and the subtle variations. But he hasnít had the breaks. He forced his way into the Indian team by sheer weight of wickets, but didnít seem to enjoy his captainís confidence and was either used as a defensive option or underbowled. Kartik was injured for much of the 2000-01 season, but forced his way into the one-day team against West Indies with a bagful of wickets in domestic cricket. Bowling with exceptional control and guile, Kartik immediately lent an incisive edge to the attack, keeping the runs in check and taking wickets in the middle overs. Despite that performance, a place in the World Cup squad remained elusive. He did tour the West Indies and England with the A teams, and remains a good bet to come back into the Indian team in both forms of the game.
