Kuruvilla lead the pace attack on the tour of the West Indies in 1997, when Javagal Srinath was sidelined with a rotator cuff injury. While he returned adequate figures from that tour, and bowled decently in subsequent Test matches on flatter pitches, he was dropped from the team. He announced his retirement from first-class cricket in April 2000 during the quarter-final of the Ranji Trophy, at 31, reasoning that he "had decided [to retire] at the beginning of the season itself that this would be [his] last season. He added, "A lot of young boys are coming up and I have to make room for them, there is no specific reason."
On 27 September 2012, Kuruvilla was appointed as the national selector from the BCCI.
