Karun Nair: Profile, Family, Girlfriends and Wiki



Karun Nair is all set to fill the void created by retirement of Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid. He seems to have the capability to score quickly like Virender Sehwag while having right attitude to become Mr. Dependable like Rahul Dravid. In his third International Test Cricket against England, he scored an unbeaten triple century. He has become the third player in the history of International cricket to convert maiden century into triple. Needless to say, his first hundred is a triple hundred, which summarize the potential this young explosive batsman has.





Profile of Karun Nair


Karun Nair was born on 6th December, 1991 in Jodhpur, Rajasthan – just one year before the demolition of Babri Maszid. The family soon shifted to Bangalore from where Karun did his schooling and later started his cricket career. He has a dream to become an Indian cricketer from his school days. He worked hard got right kind of training and succeeded in getting attention of selectors.


Karun is also an example of the inherent pluralism of India. He is a Malayalese who was born in Rajasthan and got settled in Karnataka. Scored triple century in the Ranji Final in Tamil Nadu. Later played IPL for Bangalore, Rajasthan and Delhi. And, in the end, has become heartthrob to million of Indians. 


Karun made an entry into the Indian domestic cricket with Karnataka team in 2013 – 14. He made it possible for Karnataka to win the prestigious Ranji Cricket Tournament that season with three consecutive centuries in the final stage of the tournament. Since then, he has become a sort of run machine in the domestic circuit.


He has also played for various teams in the IPL – Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils. Unfortunately, at this stage, he is yet to justify the immense potential he has. His performance is good only in few IPL matches and that’s too are not consistent. However, that doesn’t mean that he lacks the attitude to score in the shortest format of the game. Hopefully, this triple century will give him enough confidence to take on big wigs in the next IPL.
