Former cricketer Devang Jayant Gandhi was born on 6-9-1971 in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India. He was mainly a right hand batsman who bowled right hand medium pace occasionally.
He represented India in four tests and three ODIs. His international test debut was against New Zealand in Mohali in 1999. Partnering Sadagoppan Ramesh as opener, he made a promising debut which continued in the second test as well.
Subsequently he was selected for India’s tour of Australia in 1999/2000. However, he was unable to face shorts pitched balls in the match in Adelaide. He was unable to face the rising ball and his poor technique became apparent which was exploited by the bowler Glen McGrath.

He has also played for the team of Bengal in Ranji Trophy, and East Zone in Duleep Trophy. He also played for North Wales Cricket League.
