Doddanarasiah Ganesh or simply Dodda Ganesh was born on 30 June 1973 in Bangalore, Karnataka. He plied his trade as a right-arm seam bowler and handy lower-middle order batsman in the cricket. He was one of the coveted players hailing from the Karnataka region.
His talent was first spotted by Gundappa Vishwanath and enrolled him into Tarapore Club. Growing up, he had seen himself as a wicket-keeper and an opening batsman before reconsidering his spot for right seam bowler. He, later on, shifted to AV Jayaprakash’s camp and nurtured his talents enough to merit a place in the Karnataka stateside.
He was part of Indian national team on five occasions namely 4 Tests and 1 ODI international. After failing to make an impression on the international scene he returnedback to the state level. He continued playing at the state level where he stood by as a mainstay in the Karnataka state team.
He retired after a decade-long career and ventured into coaching. He took the position of coach of Goa in 2012-13. He, later on, shifted his gaze to the politics and has joined Janata Dal (secular) led by former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda.
