Praveen Kumar emerged as a typical swing bowler. Although his speed mostly remained in the mid-120s, his deceptive swing caused a lot of problems for the batsmen.

Hailing from Meerut, Praveen made his name in international cricket on the back of some impressive performances during the 2008 CB series. He got 4 wickets apiece in each of the finals - including the key wickets of Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke.

Praveen continued to perform consistently in the ODIs and T20s. He was awarded a place in the Test side in 2011. His returns were decent enough but he never got a chance to play Tests again.

With lack of pace and multiple disciplinary issues, Praveen eventually fell out of national reckoning. However, he kept playing in the IPL. Praveen retired from all forms of cricket in 2018.
