Long Name : Hemang K Badani
Birthday : 14 November 1976
Birth Place : Chennai
Country : India
Batting : Left Hand Bat
Bowling : Slow Left Arm Orthodox
ODI Debut : India vs Bangladesh at Dhaka, Asia Cup, 1999/00

Badani made his first class debut against Kerala in the 1996-97 season following a fine showing for India Under-19 against South Africa at home. Before long he was stepping up a gear, playing for India A in the SAARC one-day tournament in Dhaka in 1998. His selection for the Asia Cup last May was not surprising, coming just after two elegant knocks of 162 & 63 in the Ranji Trophy semifinal against Mumbai. Badani looks ready to cut his teeth in the Test arena too. His biggest asset is his temperament, it keeps him cool even under greatest of pressures. Badani carves the ball around with a touch of elegance, discriminating in favour of the gaps, and his front foot drive played on the rise through cover is especially pleasing.
