tall legspinner capable of extracting extra bounce from pitches, Rahul Sharma made a name for himself with impressive performances for Pune Warriors in the 2011 IPL. He dismissed Sachin Tendulkar in Pune’s match against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium and then had figures of 2 for 7 in the return fixture at the DY Patil Stadium. Those performances helped him find a place in the Indian ODI squad for the home series against England in October 2011. He did not make the playing XI in that series or the Tests against West Indies that followed, but finally debuted in the fourth ODI against West Indies in Indore in December.

Rahul Sharma, whose accuracy is one of the virtues of his game, got his first international wicket with a topspinner, which Marlon Samuels tried to cut. There was no sidespin as expected by the batsman, who bottom-edged it onto his stumps. That was also the first of the three wickets Sharma grabbed in his ten-over spell on debut.

If the first one was a topspinner, the second one was a quick leggie which went through the legs of Danza Hyatt, who stretched to reach the pitch of the ball before getting himself in a tangle.

The wicket of Kieron Pollard ignited hopes that Sharma would also join the list of debutants who have had a phenomenal year so far. But a docile Indore surface and a bit of reality check by Andre Russell, who slog-swept the bowler for three sixes, restricted him from joining that club.

It is little wonder that purists of the game have already started comparing Rahul Sharma with Anil Kumble, whom he resembles a lot - both in deeds and demeanour. Sharma is as tall as Kumble, and also possesses the same weapons in his bowling armoury that Jumbo had. Whether topspinner or slider, flipper or googly, all the varieties of leg spin bowling that the 24-year-old displayed on Thursday were reminiscent of Kumble.

Rahul Sharma came to prominence when playing for Pune Warriors in the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League. Many eyebrows were raised and innumerable questions were asked when, with a first-class tally of 16 wickets in nine matches, Sharma got the selectors' nod ahead of many consistent performers in the domestic circuit. 

His performance on Thursday vindicated the selectors' decision, though it can be said that giving Sharma a central contract was perhaps a hasty move
