Ajit Agarkar is India's matchwinner with bat and ball. Agarkar's entry into international cricket - with an avalanche of wickets that made him the fastest to 50 in ODIs - was matched for speed only by an astonishing batting slump that saw him collect seven consecutive Test ducks against Australia. He scored half-centuries in 21 balls in a one-day game against Zimbabwe, and Test centuries at Lord's.
