Son of Karnataka and Indian cricketing legend Roger Binny, Stuart is a burly all-rounder from Bangalore.
The local boy made his debut for Karnataka in 2003-04 and has even led the state side. He was the leading run-scorer for Karnataka in 2011-12 and also claimed a 10-wicket-haul during this season.
He’s mastered an array of elegant strokes to put the ball beyond the boundary. But when needed, he can go all-out and slog the ball into the farthest stands. Stuart often finds himself in situations where he has to score swiftly while protecting the lower order – one of the trickiest positions to bat at.
But he has proven time and again that he has the temperament and skill required to play this role. When it comes to bowling, the medium pacer bowls stump-to-stump and heavily depends upon variations in pace and length to trick the batsman.
In 2010, he was picked up by the Mumbai Indians and in the following year by the Rajasthan Royals. He turned into an extremely critical part of their camp – he’s played some blinding innings and bowled some sublime spells for RR.
He had an outstanding domestic season in 2013-14 to earn a place in the Indian ODI team for the tour of New Zealand no surprise. He played his first ODI ever on 28 January, 2014 in this series.
He also made his Test debut in the same year when India were touring England. His T20I debut came a little later – in 2015 when India went head to head against Zimbabwe. He bettered Anil Kumble's 6/12 by taking 6/4 against Bangladesh in 2014, making him the holder of the best figures by an Indian in ODIs.
Stuart’s mettle has been tested and forged in the heat of some extremely tense match situations. But he has shown great resilience and fought his way out most times. Add him to the backbone of our top heavy batting line-up and you have a sturdy, balanced batting order that can take on anything!
