Naman Ojha has gone about his task quietly but effectively

For a wicket-keeper who has often played under the shadows of more recognized keepers such as Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik amongst others, Naman Ojha has been a constant presence in the IPL and has featured in every season so far.

From a total of 113 matches across ten seasons, Naman Ojha has 74 dismissals to his name - 64 catches and 10 stumpings. After playing for Rajasthan in 2009 and the year after, Naman Ojha was picked by the Delhi Daredevils for the next three seasons but unfortunately could not find a regular place on the side.

In 2014, he shifted base to play for the Sunrisers Hyderabad and enjoyed a maiden stint with Sunrisers, scoring 232 runs from 11 games at an excellent strike rate of 144.09. In the next three seasons, his performance with the bat went down but his wicket-keeping skills came to the fore, ranking him highly as one of the best IPL keepers of all time.
