E.A.S Prasanna
One of the successful spinners to have worn the Indian cap, E.A.S Prasanna is known for his aggressive intent and great control over his bowling.

E.A.S PrasannaErapalli Anantharao Srinivas Prasanna was part of India`s famed spin bowling quartet. An off-spinner, he was Born in Bengaluru and made his Test debut in 1961. Following this, he went back to complete his studies made a comeback in 1967. E.A.S. Prasanna had a brisk, neat, high action and fine control over the length and line. He often used to flight the delivery to which batsmen often made the mistake of charging him down the line and leading to their downfall. He was a bowler with aggressive intent and would bait the batsman over after over and induce him to make errors.

He had a highly successful career and by the time he retired in 1978, he had 189 wickets under his belt in 49 Test matches. Prasanna, better known to pals as Pras, had the mind of a chess-player. Most of his dismissals were well planned and had little to do with the nature of the pitch. He preferred to rely on flight and hence was successful even on batsman friendly pitches. His arm ball was especially dangerous as it often caught the batsman unawares. But he had to face the ignominy of being dropped in the 70s owing to some team politics. He hung up his boots in 1978 after India`s tour of Pakistan. Pras also captained Karnataka to the Ranji Trophy twice - once against the might of Bombay. Prasanna, who was both respected and feared by opponents, feasted on batsmen trying to attack him. Prasanna has a total of 957 first class victims. He has written his autobiography as well named; "One More Over".
