Upon retirement from international cricket, only the great Kapil Dev had captured more Test wickets among Indian paceman than Srinath had (although Zaheer Khan did then go on to pass that figure), while no fast bowler has ever snared more than his 315 ODI scalps.
Srinath, who was deceptively quick for an Indian seamer, perhaps even the fastest his country has ever produced, made great use in the first part of his career of the off cutter, especially in subcontinental conditions.
However, as he got older and wiser, he then introduced the away swinger into his armoury as well, thus making him twice as effective as a bowler. Just like a fine wine, Srinath just got better with age, as demonstrated by his eye-catching displays for his country in his swansong at the 2003 World Cup in South Africa.
