Karsan Devjibhai Ghavri (born February 28, 1951, Rajkot, Gujarat) is a former Indiancricketer who played in 39 Tests and 19 ODI from 1974 to 1981. He played in the 1975 and 1979 World Cups.
Ghavri was a left-arm fast-medium pace bowler, with a long run-up and a high leaping action. He could also produce quickish but accurate left-arm finger spin. Altogether he took 109 Test wickets, including four five-wicket hauls. With the bat he was usually found in the lower order but managed a couple of Test half centuries including a career best 86 against Australia in Bombay. By the time he was dismissed he had made a record eighth-wicket partnership of 127 with Syed Kirmani. His 86 came of just 99 balls which contained 12 fours and 3 huge sixes. Syed Kirmani who was sent as a night watchman remained unbeaten with 101. India went on to win that Test match and also the series against Kim Hughes' Australian team.
Despite making his debut in 1975, it wasn't until the season of 1976-77 that he cemented his spot in the side after series against New Zealand and England. He remained a regular member of the side until 1981. His most successful series came against the West Indies in 1978-79 with 27 wickets.
