After Bishan Singh Bedi, Pragyan Ojha was one of the best left-arm off-spinners to play for India. With 113 Test wickets in 24 Tests, Ojha never got the credit he deserved, as he mostly played with dominant spinners who hogged most of the limelight such as Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin.

Not many people know that Ojha has played in the County Championship. Although he played only four games for Surrey in 2011, his performances were noteworthy. He took 24 wickets at a brilliant average of 12.95.

He played a key role in helping Surrey secure the Division two title. The county stint helped Ojha vastly as he picked up 71 wickets in the next 13 Tests. Unfortunately, the 31-year old Hyderabadi hasn’t represented India since 2013 as Sachin’s farewell Test was the last time he played.
