Krishna Srikkanth played domestic cricket for Tamil Nadu and South Zone. He made his ODI debut against England in Ahmedabad in 1981, followed two days later by his Test debut against England at Bombay at the age of 21. He opened the innings partnering Sunil Gavaskar. Known for his aggressive batting style, he was an early role model for opening batsmen in future years to adopt a similar approach to take advantage of fielding restrictions in the initial overs. As he matured, he tempered his aggression somewhat and became a mainstay of the Indian cricket team. He was an integral member of the Indian squad when they won the 1983 Prudential World Cup and 1985 Benson & Hedges World Championship of Cricket. In the 1983 World Cup final against the West Indies, Krishna Srikkanth top scored for India. He was made the captain of the Indian team in 1989. He remained the captain of the team for India's tour of Pakistan in 1989 and managed to draw all the four Tests of the series. But the selectors were disappointed with his batting failures and dropped him. He returned two years later and played for another year before being dropped again. He retired from international cricket in 1993. He was the first Indian player to score a half century and pick up 5 wickets in an ODI. He achieved this feat against New Zealand at Vishakapatnam in 1988. Krishna Srikkanth holds the unusual distinction of scoring the only run ever scored in international cricket at Ray Mitchell Oval, in Mackay, Australia. The venue hosted its only international match during the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
