Saba Karim About this sound pronunciation  (born 14 November 1967 in Patna) is a former Indian cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a wicket-keeper.

Career[edit]

Karim started his first-class career for Bihar in 1982-83 at the age of 15, immediately after finishing his schooling at St. Xavier's High School, Patna. His career-best score was 234 against Orissa in the 1990-91 Ranji Trophy.[1] He was first picked for India as a replacement for Nayan Mongia in the Standard Bank Series in South Africa in 1996-97 and he performed well with the bat when he scored 55 on debut and a 38 in the next match, however his next eight innings saw him make 49 runs.

The effects of an eye injury suffered while keeping for India against Bangladesh in a limited-overs match in May 2000 ended his playing career.[2] However, he played one Test, also against Bangladesh, in November 2000.[3]

National selector[edit]

On 27 September 2012 Saba Karim was appointed as the national selector from the East Zone.[4]
