G.R. Sunderam was a right arm fast medium bowler and a right hand batsman. He underwent training in the cricket school run by Alf Gover in 1953. He represented India in the unofficial 'Test' against the Silver Jubilee Overseas Cricket team later that year before appearing in Ranji matches.
His two Test matches were against New Zealand in 1955-56. He took one of the two wickets when New Zealand made 450 for 2 in the Delhi Test and two more wickets in the next one. But the presence of medium pacers like G. S. Ramchand and Dattu Phadkar, who were much better batsmen, limited his chances.
