Surinder Khanna played an essential role in India’s victory in the 1984 Asia Cup victory. He did his job efficiently for the side as a wicketkeeper and batter. With the bat, he hit a couple of fifties and ended up becoming the highest run-scorer in the competition with 107 runs in two games at a strike rate of 75.88. 

His incredible batting efforts also got him the Player of the Series award at the end of the competition. Khanna didn't get much success in his international career as he could play only 10 matches for India, however, he did well for Delhi in domestic cricket, scoring more than 6500 runs in 151 matches. 

After the 1987-88 Ranji Trophy, he hung up his boots, and between the 1991 and 1992 seasons, he joined Stewart’s Melville Royal High Cricket Club in Edinburgh. In the 1991 installment, he racked up 1098 runs at an impressive average of 91.5. Surinder currently provides services to media publication houses as a cricket expert.
