Sadagoppan Ramesh pronunciation (help·info) (born 16 October 1975) is an Indian cricketer and film actor. He is a left-handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler. On debut, facing Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram, he made a solid 44 off 41 balls. He was a relatively aggressive opener, ending his Test career with a strike rate at 46 runs per 100 balls - better than his opening partners such as Devang Gandhi and Shiv Sunder Das.
Despite having run up a Test average of over 50 in his first six Tests, Australian detractors claimed that when it came to their bowlers, his form would not hold up; Ramesh, however, soon proved that he could easily play against other top-class cricketers. After a respectable series in 2001-02 in which he did not convert his starts into big scores, he was soon discarded from the team. In the Sri Lankan tour, Ramesh passed 30 runs in 5 out of the 6 innings but only one innings was converted to a 50. Whilst he struggled in Australia, he did score a total of 110 runs in Shoaib Akhtar's first test match against India. Akhtar took 4 wickets in each innings, including the first ball wicket of Sachin Tendulkar with an inswinging yorker.
Sadgopan ramesh is married his wife Aparna in 2002.They have a daughter.
