Daren Ganga Profile

Daren Ganga's career highlight dates back straight to the 2000-01 tour to Australia, where he shone with two consecutive centuries. A right-handed opening batsman, Ganga's career graph has been filled with varied highs and lows.

Ganga made his international debut in a Test against South Africa in1998, and a year later went on to debut in ODIs against the same opposition. A slow starter, he initially did not make any considerable impact, but with more opportunities coming his way, Ganga exposed his true potential. However, he continued to remain on the fringes of the West Indies side, more because of his fluctuating form. When recalled for the New Zealand tour in 2005-06, he emerged as the second highest run-scorer in the series. He continued to put up impressive scores in the series that followed, first against India and then Pakistan. But eventually, his form kept dripping and he was soon neglected by the selectors, hinting towards a drop from the squad. Following Ramnaresh Sarwan's injury that ruled him out during the England tour, Ganga was handed over the team's captaincy, but did no good as he could not strike with the bat. He made a comeback for a series against the Proteas in 2008, but failed miserably in his six innings. Ganga spent majority of 2009 outside the national team, but did not stop playing cricket.

Less success on the big stage did not deter this Trinidad-born player from making waves on the domestic front. Ganga led his side, Trinidad & Tobago to the finals of the Stanford 20/20, winning the tournament and furthermore, earning the team a place in the Champions League T20 held in India that year.
