RudraPratap Singh first made the headlines in the Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh in 2004, taking eight wickets with an average of 24.75, bowling well in the slog overs at the end of the innings. Later that year, he joined the conveyor belt of Indian left-arm seamers, taking 34 wickets in six Ranji Trophy games for Uttar Pradesh, the joint-highest for the summer. He made the national One-Day squad at the end of 2005, and took two wickets in his second over of international cricket, against Zimbabwe at Harare in September.
He took four wickets (and the match award) against Sri Lanka in his third game, and three more in his fourth, before a run of four wicketless matches cost him his place after the first match of the West Indies tour in May 2006.
RP is well respected in the Indian set-up, as VirenderSehwag confirmed, "RP is a very talented bowler - his speciality is that he can bring the ball into the right-handers and swing it both ways."
The tours of Bangladesh and England in 2007 was the start of RP Singh's most prolific season, which included a five-wicket haul at Lord's, crucial strikes in the victorious ICC World Twenty20 and a four-wicket haul in Perth which shut Australia out of the match.
