I thought it would be interesting to do a profile on some of the different cricket players out there but I am really having trouble getting information on him. According to the Deccan Charger official website, he was born 7 Nov 1984 and is a right-handed batsman. That's it. No more information, other than a few stats, is available. When I google his name, I come up with information on a mathmetician at MIT born on a different date. Cricket Zone does not even have him listed as a team member. I'm really confused. Does anyone know anything about this player?

Perhaps he is a very private person? I know it's rare in an athlete these days but he obviously stays out of the limelight. The only real information I could find other than what you already did was http://content.cricinfo.com/india/content/player/26167.html which mostly just has statistics.

Some are more well hidden than others. I could understand wanting to know everything about a favorite of your own but still there are many who just do not want their info spread about.

There are many random stats pages out there but do not be confused, there is also one on wiki that says he is a math wizz. Maybe we just can not find anything since he is kind of on the young side?

I saw the page on Wiki but I'm not convinced it is the same person. The Charger homepage lists his date of birth as 09 Nov 1984. The article on Wiki gives a birthdate of 10 Sept 1980.

If I was a sports player, I would try to keep my life fairly private as well, but I would still tell reporters some of the basics about me. But then again, maybe being a bit of a mystery can be a good thing sometimes?

I think so many people tend to make wikis just to say they have, there could be a number of things on that page that are wrong, misleading, confusing. It might not be wikis fault, but when you give everyone the power to chime in, you know some (bad) people will do what they can to mess it up.

People stay hidden for good reasons and unless they disclose why (doubtful) we will just never know. Sometimes I like knowing little about a person so I do not throw in their sports life with the rest of their life and have both conflict.

Prof. Abhinav Kumar of MIT, a mathematician, is not the cricketer you are looking for. Prof. Abhinav had his schooling in Jamshedpur till 1998. He was IIT-JEE topper (AIR - 1) in 1998.
