Dharamsala (HP), November 11, 2012: Twenty-seven-years-old Paras Dogra of Palampur, District Kangra, is all set to enter the test match squad of India.

He proved his worth by cracking a double ton in Ranji against services at Nadoun in Himachal on Sunday.

Born November 19, 1984, the all rounder has also played for Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals in IPL.

Right-hand bat, Paras can deliver Leg breaks when needed.

Making his first class debut in 2001, he has so far scored 3,570 runs in 56 matches for Himachal. He has scored 9 centuries with two double ones. He has already one century against Kerala this session before the latest 210. He has also a couple of first class wickets to his belt. A very agile fielder, Paras, if chosen could be the first cricketer from Himachal to do duty for India
