Nayan Ramlal Mongia About this sound pronunciation  (born 19 December 1969 in Baroda) is a former Indian cricketer. He played as a right-handed batsman and a wicketkeeper. Currently, he is a cricket analyst.

When he first toured England in 1990, he impressed Alan Knott, who claimed Mongia was a natural. Having spent many years as India's second wicketkeeper after Kiran More, Mongia first made it into the team in the mid-90s and was from then on the number one choice for wicketkeeper.

Mongia has a highest Test score of 152, which came against Australia. He was dropped from the team after dissent and allegations of match-fixing.[1] Mongia retired from first class cricket in December 2004.[2]


  • Mongia holds the record for most catches in a test match (8-twice) by an Indian Wicket-keeper.[3]
  • He also shares with M.S. Dhoni the record for most dismissals (includes stumpings) by an Indian Wicket-keeper in a Test (8).
