Ya, you are right; he just

Ya, you are right; he just played in 4 Tests. Interestingly, he is the only SL player to score a double ton on debut. In fact, his 201* is the highest score by a WK on Test debut.

Call it fate or his inconsistency with the bat, he had a very short Test career. In his debut Test, despite frequent rain interruptions he managed to score a double ton. But, to his utter bad luck, the rest of the series (2 Tests) was canceled owing to security fears as a bomb exploded near the Kiwi Team's hotel. However, the knock did cement his place in the ODI side for some time, but his inconsistency with the bat saw him being replaced by Hashan Tillakaratne.

Wonder had the Kiwi tour not got canceled, how his career might have panned out...Even his ODI debut against Aus was marred by rain as SL didn't get to bat.

Nair, unfortunately, is playing in the times when India is dealing with the problem of plenty...hopefully, his time will come soon.
