Parthiv Patel is one of the many wicket-keepers India utilized before Mahendra Singh Dhoni came to prominence. In his brief tenure with the Indian cricket team that began in 2002-03, Patel played some commendable knocks against some of the best bowling line-ups despite his petite frame. His glove work was splendid, but lacked consistency. He never achieved the same success as Dhoni and so returned unceremoniously to the domestic league.
However, just when you thought you’d seen the last of this young lad, Patel's willow started scripting a comeback of its own in 2007. Four consecutive centuries in the first-class circuit against national teams put him into the limelight once again, and he was signed by Chennai in 2008 for the Indian T20 league. After three successful seasons there, he was auctioned to Kerala in 2011, where he was named skipper after the departure of Mahela Jayawardena.
Parthiv was then bought by Hyderabad in 2012 for the fifth edition of the Indian T20 league. Along with Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv was consistent at the top of the order in that outfit. Bangalore took note of that and grabbed him for the 7th season in 2014.
