Profile

Gulam Bodi is an Indian-born South African cricketer. He is a left-handed batsman and a handy slow left-arm chinaman bowler.

Bodi came close to a national call-up as well - he was chosen to play against the West Indies but broke a finger, and then slipped from the radar. It had been his left-arm chinaman that first caught the eye, but the bowling took a back seat as he concentrated on his batting. The introduction of Pro20 brought a new lease of life to his game. He can be an aggressive batsman as he showed when he helped the Titans achieve success.

Bodi was also named in the Twenty20 World Championship squad. He was bought by the IPL franchise Delhi for the fifth season in 2012. Later that year, the South African returned to his country to play for the Highveld Lions in the Champions League T20 2012.
