Saurabh Sunil Tiwary,(born December 30, 1989 in Bhagalpur, Bihar) is an Indian One Day International and first class cricketer. Tiwary is a left-handed middle order batsman. He was one of the key batsmen in the Indian team that won the 2008 U/19 Cricket World Cup in Malaysia.He was born in a bihari family in Bhagalpur, Bihar and brought up in Jamshedpur.
Indian Premier League
He represented Mumbai Indians from the 2008 Indian Premier League. He has become a regular player for them in the IPL 2010, where he was dubbed as a left-handed version of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Both are from Jharkhand, stocky, and Tiwary sports the long hair that Dhoni used to have before late 2008.
He has won the Under-23 player of the tournament for IPL 2010 representing Mumbai Indians as he had a fairly successful tournament, scoring 419 runs in 16 matches, at an average of 29.92 and strike rate of 135.59. He was signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the 2011 Indian Premier League at a price of USD 1.6 million.
He was called into the squad for the 2010 Asia Cup, but did not play. He made his ODI debut against Australia in Visakhapatnam in October 2010 after a few first-choice players were rested.
All this apart he is still yet to prove his merit in the main form of cricket - Tests and ODIs.
