After carrying the burden of the Tamil Nadu’s middle order for nearly 14 years, Subramaniam Badrinath is set to play for Vidarbha in the 2014-15 season.

Since marking his debut in the 2000-01 season, till now, Badrinath has played 85 first-class matches for Tamil Nadu scoring over 6000 runs which including 22 centuries, averaging nearly 57.

I’m in the process of finalising the move,” he told. “I need to get an NOC from the TNCA, and then sign a contract with Vidarbha.

If Vidarbha confirm the Badrinath’s transfer, then Tamil Nadu they can look forward to make a strengthened batting line-up as they already signed up with Karnataka’s Ganesh Satish. Satish played a match-winning knock in last season’s Ranji Trophy final who said that he was disappointed as he hadn’t been a regular for Karnataka across all formats.

Similar to Satish, Badrinath also couldn’t hold down on to a place across all formats. Last season, his bat produced 540 runs at 49.09 in the Ranji Trophy which included a century and three fifties and featured for Tamil Nadu in the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy. However, he was dropped from the state’s squad for the 20-over Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Not only been a inconsistent team player in all forms even wasn’t properly given importance in captaincy. The TNCA even gave the responsibilities for Balaji but failed to keep high hopes on Badri after some poor seasons.

Incidentally, Badrinath went unsold at the IPL player auction for Seventh Season after been a regular member for Chennai Super Kings for past six seasons. For not being signed at the auction, Badri later said, felt like a “blow to my chest“.

When asked what had forced for the decision to behind the move, Badrinath apparently said there was no specific reason, and also said that he will let everyone know when everything is confirmed.
