He made his Test debut in the first Test of the 2010-11 tour of South Africa, where he went wicketless and conceded 101 runs in 26 overs.

Meanwhile, the 31-year-old Saurashtra left-arm pacer bowled brilliant lines and length in the first session and was generating good bounce. On the 5th ball of the 15th over, he finally got the reward for bowling good lengths as he dismissed the 24-year-old Zakir with a back-of-a-length delivery just outside off-stump.
