Sagi Lakshmi Venkatapathy Raju pronunciation (help·info) (Born July 9, 1969 in Alamuru) is an Indian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a left-arm spin bowler. He was nicknamed \Mr. Muscles\" because of thin frame during his playing days. He was well known for his variations in flight and for his arm ball. Raju was a successor to Maninder Singh in the finger-spinning style. Raju was a member of the Indian spin trio of Kumble-Raju-Chauhan, in the 1990s. Raju came into the Indian side in 1989-90 after capturing 32 wickets in the domestic season. He made his Test and One Day International debut in the tour of New Zealand. When sent in as a night-watchman in his first Test innings, he batted for more than two hours for 31 runs while six wickets fell at the other end. He was part of the Indian team in England in 1990, but the knuckle of his left hand was broken by Courtney Walsh
