He was mostly a batsman, but as his leg breaks progressed, he became more of a bowling allrounder. He earned his bachelor’s degree in commerce from Bengaluru’s Jain University. Gopal’s father, Ramaswamy Gopal, played club cricket for 20 years, and his mother, Amitha, was a state volleyball player. He used to imitate his role model Anil Kumble’s bowling action when he was younger.
