Sadagopan Ramesh

16 Aug 1975 (Age 42)
Sadagoppan Ramesh is an Indian cricketer. He is a left-handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler. On debut, facing Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram, he made a solid 44 off 41 balls. He was a relatively aggressive opener, ending his Test career with a strike rate at 46 runs per 100 balls - better than his opening partners such as Devang Gandhi and Shiv Sunder Das.

Despite having run up a Test average of over 50 in his first six Tests, Australian detractors claimed that when it came to their own bowlers, Ramesh's form would not hold up. Ramesh, however, soon proved that he could easily play against other top-class cricketers. After a respectable series in 2001-02 in which he didn't convert his starts into big scores, he was soon discarded from the team.

In the Sri Lankan tour, Ramesh passed 30 runs in 5 out of the 6 innings but only one innings was converted to a 50. Whilst he struggled in Australia, he did score a total of 110 runs in Shoaib Akhtar' s first match. Shoaib took 4 wickets in each innings, including the first ball wicket of Sachin Tendulkar with an inswinging yorker.

He played domestic cricket for Assam in the 2007–08 season. He has also till recently played domestic cricket for Kerala during the 2005–06 season and 2006–07 season.

Ramesh has recently acted in a Tamil movie, Santosh Subramaniam released April 2008. Next Movie is Patta Patti 50-50
