Jeet Raval is another Indian-born player who plays for New Zealand. Born in Ahmedabad, India on 22 September 1988, Raval started his career as a medium-pace bowler for Gujrat’s Under-15 and Under-17 team and then switched to the role of a batting all-rounder. Raval opened innings with then Indian wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel. Raval moved to Auckland, New Zealand when he was 16. He was given a chance to play by Sri Lankan coach Kit Perera after a spontaneous meeting at a gas station where Raval’s father was working.
