Guha was a medium-fast opening bowler. While he was a 20-year-old student at Calcutta University, he was largely responsible for inflicting the only defeat on the touring West Indians in 1966-67, when he took 4 for 64 and 7 for 49 for a combined Central and East Zones team.[1] He was less successful on the subsequent tour of England, although he played in one of the Tests. He also had little success in three Tests against Australia in 1969-70.[2] However, he continued to bowl successfully for Bengal in the Ranji Trophy, with best figures of 7 for 18 against Assam in 1972-73.[3]
