Nayan Mongia About this sound pronunciation is a former Indian cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a wicketkeeper.
When Nayan Mongia 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-1990s and was from then on the number one choice for wicketkeeper.
Mongia has a highest Test score of 152, which came against Australia cricket team in the one-off Test at Delhi in 1996–97 when he opened the batting. He was dropped from the team after dissent and allegations of match-fixing. Mongia retired from first class cricket in December 2004.

In international cricket, Mongia played 44 Tests ending his Test career in an epic Kolkata Test against Australia cricket team in March 2001.
On October 30, 1994, he was involved in match fixing (allegedly). Indians were chasing a target of 258 in 50 Overs . India could have chased the target until he came to bat and scored merely 4 runs off 21 balls along with Manoj Prabhakar who played a slow knock for his selfish milestone (102 off 154) as a result of which India lost the match by 46 runs after requiring 63 from 9 overs.
