Abey Kuruvilla was unfortunate to have been selected several seasons too late to the national team. Possibly the tallest player to play for India at 6'6", Kuruvilla, in spite of his well endowed physique, was not an express bowler. Thriving on his ability to swing the ball and later developing variations such as a well disguised slower delivery, he had his grounding under the tutelage of Frank Tyson as part of the BCA-Mafatlal Bowling Scheme. Kuruvilla took 35 wickets in his first full season for Bombay in 1991-92 and although widely expected to make the tour of South Africa in 1992-93, was overlooked.
