Debashish mohanty

Debasish (or Debasis) Sarbeswar Mohanty  pronunciation  (born 20 July 1976, in Bhubaneswar, Odisha) is a former Indian cricketer who played in two Tests and 45 One Day Internationals from 1997 to 2001. He was a right-arm medium-fast bowler who coupled pace to his naturally lanky frame. He found success in the limited overs format, averaging under 30 and taking over one wicket per game.



There was a period when Mohanty formed a strong new ball partnership with Venkatesh Prasad. Beginning at 1999 Cricket World Cup, he was the second highest Indian wicket taker despite playing four games fewer than the leading Indian wicket taker - Javagal Srinath. Mohanty played 17 ODIs and picked up 29 wickets at an average in the early 20s and climbed into the top 20 of the ICC ODI World Rankings. However, with the return of Ajit Agarkar, his opportunities dwindled and he played only another seven games. Mohanty, along with Harvinder Singh was instrumental in winning one of the Sahara Cup series against Pakistan in Toronto in the 1990s.
