Nair started his test career this year on November 26 in the PCA stadium Mohali against England. This is the third test match of his career.
One interesting fact about Nair is, In July 2016 in Kerela this young Indian cricketer escaped the jaws of death when a misfortune happened as the snake boat he was travelling in, capsized in river Pampa in Kerala. He swam a little to reach to the banks of the river and was rescued by the local people.
He is a 25 years old young player, right hands batsman and an off spin bowler. He was in Royal Challengers team in 2013, Rajasthan Royals in 2014 and Delhi Daredevils in 2016 during IPL matches.
