2014 Season Statistics






Birth Date 12 July 1983
IPL debut 2008

A native of Ikhar in Gujarat, Munaf Patel made his entry into domestic cricket as a tear-away fast bowler. Unassuming and reserved, and one who shows little emotion on the field, Munaf Patel goes about the business of picking wickets silently. The 29-year-old has had to contend with frequent injuries right through his career. As a result, he has cut down on his pace, but is still just as effective. While he was part of India’s ICC World Cup-winning squad in 2011, Patel hasn’t been able to seal his spot in the national playing XI. In the first three editions of the IPL, he was a vital cog in the Rajasthan Royals’ bowling attack. He was subsequently signed on by the Mumbai Indians at the IPL Player auction 2011.
