Jatin Paranjpe was a middle-order batsman who played briefly at the international level in 1998, before an ankle injury forced him out of the national team. He was the son of Vasu Paranjpe, a former Ranji Trophy player and current coach at the National Cricket Academy. It took him seven years from his Ranji debut in 1991/92 season to get the attention of the national selectors. He made a total of 606 runs in four Ranji trophy outings and guaranteed himself a place in the national team. He was part of the India ‘A’ tour of Pakistan where he did not perform well. Another solitary ODI appearance came in a triangular series involving Kenya and Bangladesh.
He made a run-a-ball unbeaten 23 in the Sahara cup in Toronto to steer India to victory in the opening match. Two games later he hurt his ankle in the field and was forced to fly back home. He has been confined to domestic cricket ever since. He made 652 runs at an average of 50.15 in the 1999/2000 season, but failed to gain the attention of the selectors.
