Nationality: Indian
Playing Role: Right-handed Top Order Batsman and Right-arm Medium/Fast
Coaching qualifications: None

Ankit Lamba is an accomplished Right-handed opening Batsman from Rajasthan, India. A very promising youngster, he debuted in the Ranji Trophy for his native Rajasthan as a fresh-faced 17 year old in November 2009. Whilst his debut game would be his best performance in red-ball cricket with scores of 23 & 41, over time, Ankit has gone on to become a regular feature at the top of the order for Rajasthan in T20 Cricket. Ankit is also a tidy right-arm medium/fast seam bowler.

Not renowned for his hard-hitting, he has been a great foil for his opening counterparts, rotating strike and providing a stable base for those big hitters around him to do their thing. He has become Rajasthan’s “Mr Dependable” at the top of the order and has a very impressive career T20 average of well over 30. Ankit has been representing Rajasthan in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy since 2013 and is the 8th Highest run scorer in the history of the competition.

A junior star, he represented Rajasthan from U15 through to making his senior professional debut. Ankit dominated at age group level and was unlucky to miss out on the U19 National side but did attended the NCA (National Cricket Academy) on three occasions. Ankit was also Selected for the camp taken by Gary Kirsten and Greg Chappell at RCA (Rajasthan Cricket Association) Academy.

Seeking to head to the UK for the first time in 2022, Ankit will be a great pick up for a UK club seeking a reliable top order contributor to add some starch to their top order next summer and with a record like his, will surely be a popular pick.

Life and career

Born on 19 September 1951 in Pawas, Maharashtra, Solkar played as a bowling all-rounder who batted right-handed and bowled off spin. He had five siblings (including Eknath Solkar) and his father was a groundsman at the Hindu Gymkhana in Bombay. In a Harris Shield match in 1968, he scored 396 and took 6/28. This is regarded as the best all-round performance in school cricket. He made his first-class debut in the 1972/73 season for Railways and, in the same season, registered his career-best bowling figures of 8/100 in a Ranji match against Delhi. He switched to his home state team Maharashtra in the 1976/77 season and represented it for five seasons. After getting dropped from the team, he quit playing cricket on the advice of his elder brother Eknath Solkar. He finished with 26 first-class appearances in which he took 63 wickets at an average of 23.96.

After his cricket career, Solkar became an alcohol addict. He recollects, "I don’t know what happened. There was nothing left in my life after cricket. I was slowly becoming addicted to it. My day would start and end with it." In 1986, his 15-year-old daughter died of blood cancer. Solkar, who was employed with Tata Electric, quit his job in 1987. He came out of his alcohol addiction in 2007, and worked as an umpire in local matches between 2001 and 2009. He then started to coach young cricketers free of cost in Mumbai

Abhijit Vasant Kale pronunciation (help·info) (born 4 July 1973 in Ahmednagar) is a former Indian cricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler who played 1 ODI match without ever appearing in Tests.

Career

Kale began his career in 1992 for the Indian Under-19s against New Zealand. But in first class cricket, he could not find a regular place in the Bombay cricket team and hence moved to Maharashtra cricket team, for which he played during the mid-nineties and averaged nearly 60 runs per innings.

He played his only ODI match against Bangladesh at Dhaka in the TVS Cup in 2003.

In 2009 playing for Linden Park CC (an illustrious English club, with a rich history), Kale hit 39 runs – including six sixes in a row – off a single over in Kent, England. His achievement was helped by the fact that there were nine deliveries in the over, including three no balls. Kale scored a single off bowler Damion Grosscel's first ball, which was then matched by batting partner Michael Chodster Brown. Then came a two by Abhijit – followed by six consecutive sixes.

Ashok Mulvantrai Mankad pronunciation (help·info) (12 October 1946 – 1 August 2008) was an Indian cricketer. A right-handed batsman, he played for India in 22 Test matches.

Ashok Mankad was born in a Vadnagra Nagar Brahmin family as the eldest son of Vinoo Mankad, who represented India in 44 Test matches, in Bombay. His brothers Rahul Mankad and Atul Mankad were also first class cricketers.

Mankad made a sequence of big scores in the Harris Shield as a teenager. After making 348, 325 and 258 in this inter-school tournament, he was picked to represent Bombay and West Zone cricket team in Under-19 tournaments. He represented the Bombay University in the Rohinton Baria Trophy in his first year in the college. He hit 62 against Nagpur University, 131 against Karnataka and 152 against Madras in the final. Mankad made his first class debut a week before his seventeenth birthday.

Despite average performances in the domestic level in his first few years, he was selected to play Tests against New Zealand in 1969–70. The selection committee under Vijay Merchant tried out many new players that season and Chetan Chauhan and Ajit Pai also made their debut in the same match. After failing to reach thirty in any of the four innings against New Zealand, he was dropped from the team for the third Test.

Without much of a reason, Mankad was again selected against Australia a month later. This time he scored 74, 8, 64, 68 and 97 in his first five innings. Mankad batted at No.3 in the first Test and added a record 146 for the fourth wicket with Nawab of Pataudi. But when Dilip Sardesai was dropped, he opened in the remaining three Tests. Mankad and Farokh Engineer added 111 and 43 at Bombay and 85 at Delhi. Though he played 15 more Tests in his career, Mankad scored only one more fifty and the 97 at Delhi was to remain his highest score. Mankad shared some good opening partnerships with Sunil Gavaskar in the series in West Indies in 1970–71 but after a bad tour of England in 1971, he was dropped. He gave up opening in domestic cricket and reverted to batting in the middle order.

In the 1976–77 season in the Ranji Trophy, Mankad scored 827 runs at an average of 206. He hit 203* against Maharashtra and 208* against Haryana in successive innings. He went past the Bombay record of Ajit Wadekar for the highest aggregate in the tournament. These efforts found him a place for the Indian team for one last tour. In Australia in 1977–78, Mankad scored 508 runs at 50.80 in the tour matches, finished fourth in the season's averages and topped the averages for India. But three Test appearances brought him only 119 runs at 23.80, allowing Chetan Chauhan to establish himself as an opening partner of Gavaskar in this series. Mankad did not play another Test and ended his career with 991 runs.

Mankad was a heavy scorer at the Ranji level. When he retired, he had a record aggregate of 6619 runs in Ranji matches at an average of 76, with his 22 centuries equalling Vijay Hazare's record. He captained Bombay to titles in 1974–75 and 1975–76. His highest first class score of 265 was made in the 1981 finals where Bombay defeated Delhi by an innings. He also played some league cricket in England.

Mankad was married to Nirupama Mankad (née Vasant), a former Asian Tennis champion. Their son Harsh Mankad is a member of the Indian Davis Cup tennis team since 2000. Elder son Mihir Mankad was also a tennis player and is now an award-winning professor and leadership coach. Mankad served as a commentator and a coach of the Mumbai Ranji team for a few years. He died in his sleep on 1 August 2008.

Barun Burman (born 5 November 1954) is an Indian former first-class cricketer who represented Bengal from 1972 to 1986. He was a right-arm fast-medium bowler, regarded as "probably the fastest bowler Bengal has ever produced". After retirement, he became a coach and then a selector.

Life and career

Born on 5 November 1954 in Calcutta, Burman made his first-class debut at the age of 17 playing for AN Ghosh XI in the Moin-ud-Dowlah Gold Cup Tournament. He went on to appear in 54 first-class and 11 List A matches, representing Bengal, East Zone, Rest of India and BCCI Board President's XI. He came close to national team selection having been named in the probables list on a few tours, but never made it to the Indian squad. He finished his career with 146 first-class wickets at an average of 29.36.

Burman became a cricket coach after retirement. He started a cricket academy in Kolkata in 2004 called "Barun Burman Cricket Academy" where he organized coaching camps for age-group cricketers. He also worked for the Cricket Association of Bengal as a selector on its senior and junior selection committees. He was appointed the chief of junior selection committee in 2008.

Bhausaheb Babasaheb Nimbalkar (12 December 1919 – 11 December 2012) was an Indian cricketer, best known for his score of 443 not out during the 1948–49 Ranji Trophy, which remains the highest score, and the only quadruple century, in Indian first-class cricket. His score remains the highest by a cricketer not to have played in Test Cricket.

His son, Suryaji Nimbalkar, also played for both Railways and Maharashtra.

Early life

Nimbalkar was born in Kolhapur. He had his early education at the Model School in Kolhapur, and captained the school team at the age of 15. He made his Ranji Trophy debut in 1939 against Baroda. His older brother, Raosaheb Nimbalkar, also regularly played first-class cricket, and often appeared alongside him in matches.

Career

During the 1948–49 Ranji Trophy, playing for Maharashtra against Kathiawar at Pune, Nimbalkar made 443 not out, at the time second only to Don Bradman's 452 not out as the record first-class innings and currently fourth-highest of all-time. He was unable to break the record because, with the total standing at 826 for 4 at the lunch interval, the opposing captain, the Thakore Saheb of Rajkot, conceded the match to prevent embarrassment on the part of his team. However, Bradman sent a personal note to Nimbalkar saying that he considered Nimbalkar's innings better than his own.

Despite an impressive batting average of 56.72 in Ranji Trophy matches, and his additional abilities as a wicket-keeper and a fast-medium bowler, Nimbalkar never played Test cricket during a first-class career that stretched from 1939–40 to 1964–65.

Later years and death

Nimbalkar died in December 2012, aged 92.

Doddanarasiah Ganesh

Dodda Ganesh, born June 30, 1973, was one of Karnataka’s finest bowlers, but only made a fleeting appearance on the international stage. Karthik Parimal looks back at the career of this domestic stalwart.

In the second half of the 1990s, Karnataka churned out more bowlers for India than any other region. The likes of Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad and Anil Kumble, to name a few, were mainstays in the Indian bowling line-up and, understandably, were first-choice bowlers for their state too, but there were others like Sunil Joshi, David Johnson, Vijay Bharadwaj and Dodda Ganesh. That attack explains Karnataka’s success in the Ranji Trophy during the aforesaid period — they were victorious in 1995-96, 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons — and it left many other good bowlers on the fringes. However, some managed to make the cut despite the high level of standards set; Dodda Ganesh certainly belonged to that bracket.

The rise

Despite starting out as a wicket-keeper batsman, it didn’t take long for Ganesh to shine as a bowler, thanks to the legendary Gundappa Viswanath, who recognised his latent potential. His skills were further sharpened in First-Class cricketer-turned-umpire AV Jayaprakash‘s training camp and he was soon drafted into the Karnataka side thereafter, where he gained an opportunity to rub shoulders with the best in the world. Sharing a dressing room with some of India’s finest players quickly propelled him to the next level. But on hindsight, one feels that perhaps the transition should have been delayed a bit.

Running in with ball close to his chest and delivering it with an orthodox action that angled in towards the batsman, Ganesh caught the eye of many in the domestic circuit despite being surrounded by stalwarts himself. If his intentions were to try and impress his high-profile team-mates, he did a fine job of that. Soon, some of the other Indian batsmen would face Ganesh and witness his rise from close quarters.

A topsy-turvy ride

In the 1996 Irani Trophy, Ganesh bagged 11 wickets (six for 84 and five for 89), including some of India’s frontline batsmen like Navjot Sidhu and VVS Laxman (twice) which shot him to limelight. He was immediately on the radar of the national selectors and received a call up for India’s tour of South Africa in 1997. Despite the bowling line-up being stacked, Ganesh’s medium-pace was given priority. It was a moment he would have expected to meet a little later in his cricketing career, but the powers that otherwise.

Ganesh boarded the flight to wear the India cap. However, once there, the demands of international cricket swiftly brought him down to earth. In the two Tests, he bowled 43 overs and took one wicket at an average of 165. He was a novice with the bat and did little to prove otherwise in that department. Soon after the tour of South Africa, in what was to be his only One-Day International (ODI) against Zimbabwe, he conceded 20 runs for a wicket in his five overs.

Lacklustre performances notwithstanding, he was retained for the upcoming tour of West Indies. He played two of the five Tests, one of them featuring India’s collapse while chasing a modest total of 120, and tasted little success. He finished with match-figures of four for 98, but the outing was clearly insipid. After that, Ganesh donned the Indian cap just once, in the final Test at Georgetown, before being duly dropped. Thereafter, he never staged a comeback.

Perhaps, like Kumble had stated, Ganesh was too raw when he made his international debut. In an interview to ESPN Cricinfo, the latter concurred with the former’s observation. “Everything was new to me, the flight journey, the five-star hotels, the country [South Africa], and the whole touring. I was bit overwhelmed,” Ganesh said. But, the confidence he gained from being a part of an international unit was reflected when he went back to the domestic scene.

Karnataka’s stalwart

With a young breed of Indian bowlers emerging from other regions, Ganesh’s hopes of returning to the international fold slowly faded. However, the fact that Srinath, Prasad and Kumble were away on national duty for most part of the year meant that Ganesh took over the mantle for Karnataka. He delivered on a consistent basis, his 20 First-Class five-wicket hauls is a testimony to that fact, and stood up for the team. Although a mug with the bat, he scored an unbeaten 18 in a last-wicket stand that saw Karnataka trump Hyderabad in the semi-final of the 1998 Ranji Trophy. They went on to win the title that year.

By the time he called it quits from all forms of cricket in 2007, Ganesh had 365 First-Class wickets to his name. His contributions were rightfully applauded, by former and current greats, for his services were tireless. “I always put my state first and only then me. Karnataka cricket gave everything that I owe today and I am grateful for all the help from various quarters,” he stated in that interview.

Although politics managed to grab his attention, his love for cricket never vanished. He was roped in as Goa’s coach for the 2012 Ranji Trophy.

DODDA GANESH BIOGRAPHY
There were Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Anil Kumble and Sunil Joshi, all stalwarts to represent India, one of them a genuine all-time great, another one of the top pacemen to have represented the country.

However, in that Karnataka team full of stars, it was often Dodda Ganesh who captured most wickets. He did so in 1998-99, with 6 five-wicket hauls and 2 ten-fors, accounting for 74 batsmen in an amazing season.

When the Australians visited in 1996, just before the one-off Test Ganesh charged in at the tourists for the Indian Board President’s XI, dismissed Michael Slater, Mark Taylor and Mark Waugh, and finished the innings with 5 for 103. Sharing the new ball, David Johnson took 1 for 44.

Yet, with Srinath out with an injury, it was Johnson who played the Test alongside Prasad while Ganesh captured wickets against Goa and Hyderabad. When the South Africans visited, he was once against the most successful bowler in a tour match, this time for India A. But in the second innings Brian McMillan, Herschelle Gibbs and Lance Klusener got after him.

Ganesh did make it to South Africa and West Indies as a part of the Indian pace attack. However, he did not blaze the tracks. A haul of 5 wickets at 57 in 4 Tests meant he did not play for India again, in spite of bushels of wickets for Karnataka.

His ODI career is strange. He played only one game, at Bulawayo, and bowled 5 overs for 20 in exchange of a wicket in a dismal defeat against Zimbabwe. He never played again.

Ganesh continued to perform in the domestic scene, and by 2002-03 had improved his batting as well to average 41 for the season — including unbeaten 40 and 119 in a match against Vidarbha. However, his efforts were not enough for a return to the national side.

He later joined Janata Dal (Secular), and was appointed coach of Goa in 2012-13.

Salunkhe was not picked for the semi-final or final of the competition, however, with his final game coming in the last preliminary round match against Kings XI Punjab.

On 15 April 2009, he was axed by Rajasthan Royals, citing his poor form for the omission from the squad for the 2009 season.

Playing for India

After taking 24 wickets in the 1970–71 Indian season at an average of 29.00, including 5 for 114 for South Zone against East Zone in the Duleep Trophy, Govindraj was selected for the tours of the West Indies and England. Although he was the only fast bowler in the team he did not play any of the Tests, the selectors preferring to open with the medium-paced all-rounders Eknath Solkar and Syed Abid Ali and rely on three specialist spinners to take most of the wickets. He played five first-class matches in the West Indies and bowled only 91.5 overs, taking 10 wickets at 37.60. In England he played 16 matches, but took only 11 wickets at 61.27.

He played for an Indian XI against Rest of India in a match in aid of the Defence Fund in 1971–72, but took no wickets. He played on for a few more seasons before dropping out of first-class cricket at the age of 27.

After cricket

He worked for the State Bank of India during his cricket career. Later he drove buses in London, and more recently he has been a cricket coach.

Eknath Dhondu Solkar
Profile

Eknath Dhondu Solkar was arguably the greatest forward short-leg fielder in the history of Test cricket,. He played his 27 Tests for India on the strength of his fielding alone and snapped 53 catches. A gentle, colourful cricketer, he was called "a poor man's Sobers" because he could bat and bowl - fast as well as slow - as well as field.

His fielding and catching contributed substantially to the success of India's spin quartet of Bedi, Chandrasekhar, Prasanna and Venkataraghavan in the 1970s. Tall, loose-limbed and supremely athletic, Solkar had made the dangerous forward short-leg position virtually his own with his supple arms, lightning reflexes, hawk-like eyesight, brilliant anticipation and amazing concentration - all without a helmet, arm-guards or shin-guards. He would dive full-length and scoop the catch millimetres from the ground in his cupped two-handed style, unique among bat-pad specialists.

When asked for the secret of his success, Solkar, affectionately called Ekky, said: "I only watch the ball." At Calcutta in 1969-70, Solkar caught Bill Lawry so wonderfully off Bedi that the Australian captain presented him with his bat.

Then in 1971, at the Oval, India might not have won but for Solkar's stunning catches of Allan Knott and Keith Fletcher in England's crucial second innings. Knott played a forward defensive shot off Venkataraghavan. Solkar moved from his position but saw that the ball was almost out of his reach. In a split-second, he dived full length, fell on his chest and pouched the ball inches from the ground. Solkar himself admitted it was his best ever catch.

Born in Mumbai (formerly Bombay), Solkar never forgot his humble origins. He changed scoreboards at PJ Hindu Gymkhana, where his father was a head groundsman, and shared a dingy, one-room quarter behind the grounds with five other siblings and his parents. He started his career as a schoolboy cricketer, toured Sri Lanka in 1964 and later led the Indian schoolboys, including Sunil Gavaskar and Mohinder Amarnath, against the London Schools in 1965-66. In addition to his outstanding fielding, He built a reputation as a world-class left-arm spinner (who could also bowl medium pace when required) and a handy, gutsy batsman. He played as a professional for the Sussex second XI for two seasons to qualify for the first XI but played only a solitary match for the county side.

He played his maiden Test, against New Zealand at Hyderabad in 1969-70, volunteering to stand at the suicidal short-leg position, where he remained. He had a reasonably good series against the Aussies at home immediately after the Kiwis left. But it was his consistent batting and increasing habit of plucking catches out of nowhere in the West Indies in 1971 that made Solkar a star. His experience of English conditions allowed him to open the bowling in the 1971 series, with Abid Ali. The two gentle, medium-pacers saw the shine off the ball before the spin quartet took over.

In the first Test at Lord's, he scored 67 sharing in a 92-run partnership of monumental patience with Gundappa Viswanath (68) that saw India gain a first-innings lead for only the second time in a Test in England. In the third Test at the Oval, he bowled tightly in the first essay for 3 for 28, hit 44 in India's first innings and took two blinders when England batted again. After Chandrasekhar's magical figures of 6 for 38, it was Solkar's allround show that made India's triumph possible.

Though he did not do anything remarkable with the ball or bat (save for a brilliant 75 in the opening Test at Delhi) in the 1972-73 home series against England, he excelled as a fielder and took 12 catches in five Tests. He achieved little on India's disastrous tour of England in 1974 except to dismiss Geoffrey Boycott in three successive innings.

A painstaking 102 (his only Test century) against West Indies at Mumbai was Solkar's last hurrah. In a first-class career spanning 16 years, he scored 6,851 runs at 29.27, including eight centuries, took 276 wickets at 30.01 and took 190 catches. Apart from his 53 catches in 27 Tests, he made 1,068 runs at 25.42 and claimed 18 wickets at 59.44.

Kanwar Virdi (born 11 February 1969) is an Indian former cricketer. He played seven first-class matches for Haryana between 1988 and 1990. He was also part of India's squad for the 1988 Youth Cricket World Cup

The Chandigarh railway station was Kanwar Virdi’s “second home” for more than two decades before he rediscovered his love for the game three years ago. In 2019, the local association made the former pacer turned ticket examiner one of its selectors; the man who opened India’s bowling against Pakistan in the inaugural Youth World Cup in 1988 is now keen to learn the art of coaching.

Virdi’s promising career was cut short at only seven first-class games for Haryana after a stress fracture of the back. But he has some fond memories, the foremost being dismissing Inzamam-ul-Haq in the only game he got in the Youth World Cup.

“Inzamam was my first wicket, I remember (Venkatapathy) Raju took the catch. The second wicket was of Zulfiqar Butt,” Virdi told The Indian Express.


“The best part was when Pakistan coach Wasim Raja (PCB chief Ramiz Raja’s late brother) came to our dressing room and told me, ‘son, you’ve great control on your swing, and I can see you playing for India in a couple of years.’

“Probably every future great cricketer played in that tournament. Brian Lara was captain of West Indies, Sanath Jayasuriya was playing for Sri Lanka. Mike Atherton and Nasser Hussain were playing for England; Inzamam, Mushtaq Ahmed and Aaqib Javed for Pakistan; Chris Cairns for New Zealand,” recalls Virdi.

Raj Singh Dungarpur was impressed with Virdi’s bowling, and fast-tracked him into the Board Presiden’t XI in 1989 for the one-day Wills Trophy. Later that year, he was picked for the India camp ahead of the Pakistan tour.

“Sunil Gavaskar came to me and said that I was going to Pakistan. I was elated and called up my family. The next morning, my name was not in the touring party. Salil Ankola was picked ahead of me. I was furious and confronted Gavaskar. He told me, ‘this is not the end of the world, you will get more chances in future.’”

Gavaskar invited Virdi to move to Mumbai, but his financial condition was not good, so he stayed back in Chandigarh. Dennis Lillee next handpicked Virdi for the MRF Pace Foundation, but thereafter, the stress fracture meant he was never the same bowler again.

“I knew my career was over, and turned my focus on my studies. I completed my undergraduation from the DAV College in Chandigarh, and in 1993, I got the job of TTE in Railways, and Chandigarh railway station is my second home since.”

In 2019, Chandigarh got BCCI affiliation, giving Virdi a new lease of life. He was appointed men’s U-19 selector, and presently, is women’s chief selector.

“For 26 years, I was doing my regular job, travelling from one place to another on the train. In 2019, when UTCA was formally founded, it gave me a second wind. The love for cricket was reignited. I want to be more active in cricket. I want to do coaching courses from NCA.”

From the current U-19 team, Virdi rates Chandigarh all-rounder Raj Angad Bawa highly. “I have followed Raj Angad’s development very closely. I can vouch he will play for India.” (https://indianexpress.com/article/sports/cricket/winning-2012-u-19-wc-was-to-be-high-point-of-career-kamal-passi-7761769/)

Keki Khurshedji Tarapore pronunciation (help·info) (17 December 1910, in Bombay – 15 June 1986, in PuneMaharashtra) was an Indian cricketer who played in one Test in 1948.

Tarapore studied at Harda New High School and Elphinstone College, Bombay and captained both. He completed a degree in B.A. Started his first class career in 1937 for Parsees and Bombay. A left arm spinner, he was noted for his accuracy. He was reputed to be able to keep even C. K. Nayudu quiet.

Tarapore played as the understudy to Vinoo Mankad, the first of the three or four such left arm spinners, against West Indies in 1948-49. His short international career was thus described by Sujit Mukherjee:The earliest experiment – a hapless guinea-pig – was greyed Keki Tarapore who was thrust into whirling West Indian blades in the Delhi Test of 1948. Only three wickets fell to Indian bowlers on each of the first two days and Tarapore was conspicuously innocent of them all; so the mammoth crowd diverted itself by tormenting the poor man who at thirty eight (his first class career dated back to the (first) Pentangular), was not the most agile man in the field

While fielding at deep extra cover on the second day in this match, Tarapore injured his fingers while trying to stop a four hit by Robert Christiani off Vinoo Mankad. He had to leave the field, and when he came back, the crowd barracked him every time he touched the ball. 

Four months after his only Test, Tarapore played his last first class match - the Ranji final between Bombay and Baroda - where he bowled 99 overs.

Tarapore later went into cricket administration. He managed the Indian teams to England in 1967 and West Indies in 1970-71. He served as the secretary of Cricket Club of India from 1954 to 1982. Marylebone Cricket Club elected him as an honorary member in 1974.

Kapil Dev credited Tarapore with inspiring him with a remark when he was a teenager attending an under-19 coaching camp. When Kapil complained that the two chapatis given to him for lunch was insufficient as he was a fast bowler, Tarapore laughed at him and said that there were no fast bowlers in India. After he became a successful Test cricketer, Kapil sought Tarapore out at a function for giving him "a goal in life by almost challenging me to bowl fast".

Tarapore died in the Ruby Nursing Home in Pune after being knocked down by a moped.

Notes

There are two Keki Tarapores in Indian cricket. The other Tarapore (1922–2001) was better known as a coach. He was based in Bangalore and mentored many Karnataka juniors some of whom went on to play for India.

KARSAN GHAVRI BIOGRAPHY

Along with Kapil Dev, Karsan Ghavri formed what in those days was a rarity in Indian cricket — a successful opening partnership with the ball.

He was not nearly as fast as Kapil, but his left-arm pace could be nippy. His erstwhile colleagues sometimes look back at legality of the action of his bouncer with an indulgent frown, but the short ball could be quite disconcerting. And sometimes, when the situation demanded, he could bowl slow left-arm spin as well.

His peak performance was against the touring West Indies side of 1978-79, when he took 27 wickets.

Besides, he was a handy lower order batsman. At Sydney in 1977-78 he scored 64 and later, when the Australians visited, he hit 86 furious runs with three sixes at Bombay. Apart from these he saved the Indian side from almost certain defeats several times with his determined lower-order resistance.

Yet, what takes the sheen away from his achievements somewhat is the fact that most of his better performances came against Packer-depleted Australian and West Indian sides. He fought gamely in Australia in 1980-81, when Greg Chappell, Len Pascoe and Dennis Lillee were all back in action. He got the vital breakthrough in the final Test, bowling Chappell round the legs. But, he was fast losing form and soon lost his place in the side.

But, 109 wickets for an Indian bowler who mainly bowled pace, a bowling average in the lower 30s and a batting average over 20 underlined both his all-round utility and uniqueness.
Kamal Passi
Seamer Kamal Passi is still waiting for that one full season with his state team of Punjab.
Born : 30 November 1992
Written by Pratyush Raj |
Updated: February 8, 2022

Kamal Passi took 10 wickets in the World Cup — the second-most for India – but has since managed to play only four first-class games and a solitary List A match, for which he holds the Punjab Cricket Association responsible. (Express Photo)

A day after India beat Ireland in the Under-19 World Cup on January 19, the phone of a former India junior cricketer started buzzing. The cricketer was Kamal Passi, part of the champion side of 2012. When Kamal Passi returned home from his morning practice session at the Goregaon Sports Club in Mumbai, there were at least 50 missed calls and more than 100 WhatsApp messages from unknown numbers asking about his whereabouts.

In the evening, when he returned to his club for training, his fellow cricketers started congratulating him; many of them were perplexed by the fact that Kamal Passi is an U-19 World Cup winner. Confused by the surprise adulation, Passi asked one of his teammates what the fuss was all about.

“He explained to me that they had showed the highlights of my 6/23 against Zimbabwe during the Ireland match, and commentator Alan Wilkins had asked about my whereabouts, what I am doing, and why I have not played enough first-class cricket,” Passi told The Indian Express.

“When I went through all those messages that night, most of them were from journalists asking for interviews. Few were from my former Punjab and Services teammates. Everyone was asking me only one question, ‘why didn’t you play enough cricket? Why did your career never take off?” shared Passi with a big laugh.

“It has been almost 10 years since we won the U-19 World Cup, and I still don’t know where it went wrong. I didn’t have the answer, so I decided not to reply to any of them.”

Passi took 10 wickets in the World Cup — the second-most for India – but has since managed to play only four first-class games and a solitary List A match, for which he holds the Punjab Cricket Association responsible.

Kamal Passi played two first-class and one List A game for Services in 2015-16 before returning to Punjab. (FILE)

“After winning the title, I told Harmeet (Singh), who was my roommate, that I am having this terrible feeling that winning the U-19 World Cup is going to be the high point of my career. Unfortunately, whatever I told Harmeet that night turned out to be the reality.”

Passi says he was consistently ignored for even the Punjab U-23 team, making him switch to Services, for whom he eventually made his first-class debut in November 2015.

“I came back after winning the Cup, and my name was not in the Ranji Trophy camp of 40. Generally, you expect to get an entire season with the senior state team after playing for India U-19. But forget senior team camp, they didn’t even select me for the CK Nayudu [then U-23, now U-25] camp. From being someone who performed and won the U-19 World Cup, I was not good enough to play for my state’s U-23 side.

“Next year, they put me in the U-23 team, and one of the selectors told me that I was too young to play for the senior team. But Sandeep Sharma, who was with me in the U-19 squad, was playing all the matches. I said, ‘fair enough, I will earn that call.’ I ended up taking the most wickets for Punjab U-23, but again next year, the selectors gave me the cold shoulder.”

In 2015, Passi got a job in the Indian Navy. He played two first-class and one List A game for Services in 2015-16 before returning to Punjab.

“The move to Services was a desperate one. I never got the chance to settle down, and the moment Punjab called me back, I again jumped ship. It was an emotional decision. I had played U-14, U-16, U-19, U-23 for Punjab, I wanted to give it one more try.”

In 2016-17, Passi finally made his debut for Punjab, but he got only two first-class matches and was dropped. “I accepted it because I failed to grab the opportunity.

“A selector told me they weren’t looking at me for red-ball. They wanted me to play white-ball. Last day of the Syed Mushtaq Ali camp, the coach told me only two bowlers between myself, Sran (Barinder) and Gony paji (Manpreet) will be selected. I immediately knew. Both of them had played for India. I packed my kitbag and left.

“I cried for at least 45 minutes in the PCA parking lot. It has been five years, and I have never been called up again.”

Before the 2021-22 season, Passi bagged 11 wickets for Amritsar in the Katoch Shield, Punjab’s inter-district tournament, including a four-wicket haul in the semis and three wickets in the final, which Patiala won.

“A funny thing happened after the final. I was standing with Sharad Lumba, my Amritsar teammate. The PCA secretary (Puneet Bali) was congratulating the players. He greeted Sharad and walked past me. He thought I was just Sharad’s friend. Then Sharad formally introduced me to him saying that I had played U-19 for India. Secretary sahab was shocked; he looked at me from top to bottom and said, ‘You have played for India U-19?’

“To answer all those questions about why my cricket never took off, it is because of my association. I have received step-motherly treatment, and I am still trying to figure out the reason.

“To Mr Alan Wilkins, sir, I am still an active cricketer. I am still looking to cement my place in the Punjab senior team. I am 29, I still have a few years of cricket left in me, and I am an optimistic person.”

Passi, who works for the GST department in Mumbai, has no complaints from the game. “I have my share of annoyance with the administrators, but not with the sport. Because of cricket, I have got this job in the GST department. If not for this job, I don’t know what I would have done with my life.”

He is not following the current U-19 World Cup but has one piece of advice for the youngsters. “Cricket is not the end of life. The post U-19 phase will be very depressing. Not all of you will play for the India senior side even if you win the U-19 World Cup. Some of your mates will get big IPL contracts, while some you will be toiling to get matches for your senior state team.

“Reach out to your coaches, friends and families, and never lose hope. If any of you want to talk to me, feel free to drop me a text on social media, I’d love to help.”

Kamraj Kesari (24 October 1922 – 26 March 1985) was an Indian cricketer who played 33 matches of first-class cricket for several teams in India from 1941 to 1959.

A middle-order batsman and right-arm off-spin bowler, he took 7 for 55 and 2 for 41 for Gujarat when they lost by three runs to Western India in the Ranji Trophy in 1945-46. He took 6 for 62 and scored 142, his only first-class century, for Central Provinces and Berar in a drawn match against Holkar in 1948-49
Kanwar Virdi

Kanwar Virdi (born 11 February 1969) is an Indian former cricketer. He played seven first-class matches for Haryana between 1988 and 1990. He was also part of India's squad for the 1988 Youth Cricket World Cup

Konganda Charamanna Cariappa (born 13 April 1994), commonly known as KC Cariappa, is an Indian cricketer who has played in the Indian Premier League.

Playing style

KC Cariappa is a mystery spinner who bowls leg spin, whose stock delivery is the leg break. He has variations such as the googly, the quicker ball, the carrom ball as well as the off break which he bowls without changing the grip.

Career

Cariappa started playing cricket at the age of 17 as fast bowling all-rounder, but later switched to spin bowling.

In 2014, Cariappa played for the Karnataka Under-19 team and Bijapur Bulls in the Karnataka Premier League (KPL). He finished as the third-highest wicket-taker at the KPL and grabbed the attention of a few IPL scouts during the tournament. He was included in Karnataka's 30-man probable squad for Ranji Trophy, but was not selected in the final squad. In September 2014, he was asked to bowl in the trials for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) during a training camp in Hyderabad before the start of 2014 Champions League Twenty20. The captain of KKR, Gautam Gambhir failed to read his bowling during the trials, and the team management asked Cariappa to sign-up for the 2015 IPL auction.

In February 2015, Cariappa was bought by KKR at the IPL auction for ₹24 million (US$340,000), an unusually huge amount as Cariappa had not played any form of top-level cricket before he was signed-up by the Knight Riders. The Managing Director and CEO of Kolkata Knight Riders, Venky Mysore responded after the auction, "Some of the top players that we have including the legendary Kallis found him (Cariappa) to be very unusual and extremely good, and we decided to give him a shot." He made his senior cricket debut during the 2015 IPL for the Knight Riders against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on 11 April 2015 and picked up the wicket of AB de Villiers. This was the only time he played for them that season. He was released from their squad the very next season. At the next auction, he was picked up by Kings XI Punjab for a lower price of ₹8 million (US$110,000).

In 2019, he returned to Kolkata Knight Riders as a replacement when Shivam Mavi got injured. He was released by the Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of the 2020 IPL auction. In February 2021, Cariappa was bought by the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL auction ahead of the 2021 Indian Premier League.

Manek Pallon Bajana (14 September 1886 – 28 April 1927) was an Indian amateur crickete rwho played 55 first-class cricket matches between 1911 and 1920. Originally a member of the Indian team which toured England in 1911, he remained in the country and joined Somerset County Cricket Club, for which he played as anopening batsman until 1920. During his nine-year first-class cricket career, Bajana scored 1,975 runs at an average of 20.78. He scored three centuries, and made his highest score in 1920, scoring 115 runs against Cambridge University.
Early life and Indian tour


Manek Pallon Bajana was born on 14 September 1886 in India Leading up to 1911, he was employed in India by Maharaja Nripendra Narayan of Cooch Behar and early that year, Bajana travelled as part of the Maharajah's retinue to England, where Narayan was attending the coronation of King George V. In England, he joined up with thetouring Indian cricket team, as one of sevenParsi players in the side. The 1911 tour was the first by a representative Indian team, and included a mix of Hindus, Parsis, Muslims, and two members of the untouchable Chamar caste. Bajana appeared in seven matches during the tour, of which four had first-class status The team did not fare very well in their contests; the captain of the side, Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala, only played three matches and spent the rest of his time socialising with the British high society, and there were rumours of sectarianism between the Parsi and Hindu members of the team. In twenty-three matches, they won six and lost fifteen, the remaining two being drawn. Bajana was one of four batsmen to score a first-class century for the Indians; he struck 108 against Somerset at Taunton. On his first-class debut, Bajana suffered the ignominy of a pair –dismissed without scoring in both innings. During the tour, Bajana made it known that he was looking to remain in England and play county cricket. His century against Somerset drew the attention of that county, and he joined them in 1912

County cricketer

At the time of Bajana's arrival in the Somerset team, the county were struggling to compete in the County Championship, and were making a financial loss. In three of the four years prior to 1912, Somerset had finished bottom of the championship table, and there was little improvement in the final three years before the First World War, each of which resulted in a bottom-three finish. The Somerset cricket historian, David Foot, records that at this time, the county's recruitment policy was "susceptible to exotic grandeur and haughty lineage," and suggested that a player's cricketing ability was often a secondary consideration to their social standing. Bajana made his debut for Somerset in May 1912,opening the batting for the county against Sussex. He scored twenty-two and seven in a six-wicket victory for his county. In the subsequent match, against Hampshire, Bajana scored his first half-century in county cricket, hitting 71 runs in the second innings; the highest score of any Somerset batsman in the match He passed 50 on three further occasions that year, and along with Len Braund and Ernie Robson, was ever-present in the Somerset team that season. His year's aggregate of 575 runs in the County Championship, and his score of 95, made against Worcestershire in August, were both the county's best that season, in a year in which no player scored a century for Somerset.

Bajana appeared less frequently for Somerset in 1913, playing ten matches for the county. He only scored one half-century, accruing 78 runs against Derbyshire. His batting average of 19.75 in 1913 placed him fourth in the Somerset batting averages. He did not play for Somerset in 1914, and the outbreak of the First World War suspended county cricket until 1919. During the war Bajana played, and captained, a number of matches for the Indian Gymkhana Cricket Club, and scored a century for the team against a New Zealand APS side in 1918.


In 1919, Bajana returned to the Somerset team, playing in six of their twelve County Championship matches. His batting average of 27.55 in that competition was the second-highest amongst his team, bettered only by Jack MacBryan. Bajana hit two half-centuries during the season, scoring 77 against Derbyshire, and 59 against Essex. The following 1920 season was Bajana's last with Somerset. He appeared fifteen times for the county in first-class cricket, averaging just over twenty. In a match against Cambridge University, he achieved his highest first-class score, hitting 14 fours on his way to a total of 115 runs in 135 minutes. In his next match, he scored a second century for Somerset, and his only one in the County Championship, scoring 106 runs against Warwickshire. Bajana played his final first-class match against Middlesex in August 1920, scoring six and a duck. In all, Bajana scored 1,975 first-class runs at an average of 20.78. He scored three centuries and seven half-centuries in 96 innings. He was rarely used as a bowler, and took four wickets at an average of 33.00.

Personal and later life

In his history of Somerset cricket, David Foot describes Bajana as a "smallish solidly built opening bat". During his time at Somerset, he was known as "Pyjamas", which sounds similar to his surname. He played for Shepherd's Bush Cricket Club from his arrival in England, and was part of a strong batting line-up for the club. For a time, he ran an antiques and art dealership in Bayswater, London with Constantine Diamandis, but they dissolved their partnership in early 1920. After the conclusion of his first-class cricket career, he continued to play for Indian Gymkhana, including matches at Lord's against the Marylebone Cricket Club in each of 1922, 1923 and 1924. He died in Bethnal Green, London on 28 April 1927 at the age of 40.

Mohammad Yousuf (PunjabiUrdu: محمد یوسف‎; formerly Yousuf Youhana, یوسف یوحنا; born 27 August 1974) is a Pakistani right-handedbatsman. Prior to his conversion to Islam in 2005, Yousuf was one of only a few Christiansto play for the Pakistan cricket team.

Yousuf was effectively banned from playing international cricket for Pakistan, for an indefinite period by the Pakistan Cricket Boardon 10 March 2010, following an inquiry into the team's defeat during the tour of Australia. An official statement was released by the Pakistan Cricket Board, saying that he would not be selected again on the grounds of inciting infighting within the team.

On 29 March 2010, Yousuf announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket, a direct reaction to the indefinite ban handed out to him by PCB. However following Pakistan's disastrous first Test against England in July/August 2010, PCB decided to ask Yousuf to come out of retirement.

Early life

Yousuf was born in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan to a family who had converted from a Hindu lowcaste Balmiki to Christianity. His father Youhana Maseeh worked at the railway station, the family lived in the nearby Railway Colony. As a boy, he couldn't afford a bat and so swatted his brother's taped tennis ball offerings with wooden planks of various dimensions on surfaces masquerading as roads. As a 12-year-old, he was spotted by the Golden Gymkhana, though even then only circumstances dictated his ambitions and never thought of playing cricket, to make a living. He joined Lahore'sForman Christian College and continued playing until suddenly giving up in early 1994.

 For a time he tried his luck driving rickshaws inBahawalpur.

Yousuf, hailing from poor background, was plucked from the obscurity of a tailor's shop in the slums of the eastern city of Lahore to play a local match in the 1990s. His well-crafted shots attracted attention and he rose through the ranks to become one of Pakistan's best batsman. He was set to work at a tailor's when he was pulled back by a local club was short of players. They called him to make up numbers and made a hundred which led to a season in the Bradford Cricket League, with Bowling Old Lane, and a path back into the game.

Untill his conversion to Islam in 2005, Yousuf was the fourth Christian (and fifth non-Muslim overall) to play for the Pakistan cricket team, following in the footsteps of Wallis Mathias, Antao D'Souza and the Anglo-Pakistani Duncan Sharpe. He also has the distinction of being the first and so far only non-Muslim to captain the country, leading the team in the 2004–05 tour of Australia where he scored a century in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. He converted to Islam after attending regular preaching sessions of he Tablighi Jamaat, Pakistan's largest non-political religious grouping, whose preachers include Yousuf's former team-mate Saeed Anwar and his brother. His wife Tania converted along with him and adopted the Islamic name Fatima. However, the news was kept private for three years due to family reasons, before his announcement of their conversion publicly in September 2005. "I don't want to give Yousuf my name after what he has done", his mother was quoted as saying by the Daily Times newspaper. "We came to know about his decision when he offered Friday prayers at a local mosque. It was a shock", his mother was reported as saying. However, Yousuf told the BBC that "I cannot tell you what a great feeling it is." As part of his conversion, Yousuf officially changed his name from Yousuf Youhana to Mohammad Yousuf.

Former Pakistan cricketer and sports commentator Rameez Raja, who himself is Muslim, acknowledged the significance of Yousuf's new faith: "Religion has played an integral part in his growth not just as a cricketer but as a person."

Career

He made his Test debut against South Africa at Durban and One Day International debut against Zimbabwe at Harare. He has scored over 9,000 One Day International runs at an average above 40 (2nd highest batting average among Pakistani batsmen after Zaheer Abbas) and over 7,000 Test runs at an average above 50 (highest batting average amongst all Pakistani batsmen) with 24 Test centuries. He has the record of scoring the most runs without being dismissed in the One Day International match, with a total of 405 runs against Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe in 2002–2003. He has also scored a 23-ball fifty and a 68-ball hundred in One Day International. In Test match, he has scored a 27-ball fifty, which is 3rd fastest by any player. He was the top scorer during the successive years of 2002 and 2003 in the world in One Day International match. In 2004, he scored 111 runs against the Australians in the Boxing Day Test. In December 2005, he scored 223 runs against England at Lahore, also earning him the man of the match award. Seven months later in July 2006, when Pakistan toured England, he scored 202 runs and 48 in the first Test, again earning himself the man of the match award. He followed up with 192 in the third Test at Headingley and 128 in the final Test at The Oval.

Yousuf was named CNN-IBN's Cricketer of the Year for 2006, ahead of the likes of Australian captain Ricky Ponting, West Indies Brian Lara, Australian spinner Shane Warne, South Africa's bowling spearhead Makhaya Ntini and Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan. He was selected as a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in the 2007 edition. Yousuf became the fourth recipient of the ICC 'Test Cricketer of the Year' award for 2007, he scored 944 runs at an average of 94.40 including seven centuries and two fifties in just 10 innings and that was enough to be awarded the honour ahead of English batsman Kevin Pietersen and Australian batsman Ricky Ponting.

A year that started on a promising note, Yousuf carried it forward to break two world records both held earlier by former West Indian batsman Viv Richards. The 32-year-old, Pakistani batsman achieved an unparalleled 1788 runs in just 10 Test matches with the help of twelve centuries which became his second world record. Yousuf is known for his ability to score runs at exceptional rate through his great technique and composed strokeplay. Although capable of hitting the ball hard, Yousuf is quick between the wickets, although he is prone to being run out.

Yousuf is a skilful infielder, with a report prepared by Cricinfo in late 2005 showing that since the1999 Cricket World Cup, he had effected the seventh highest number of run-outs in ODI cricket of any fieldsman. He is also distinguished by his characteristic celebration after hitting one hundred runs for his country, where he prostrates in thankfulness to Allah in the direction of Mecca. He has observed this act (known as the Sajdah) since his conversion to Islam.

In 2007, after initially signing a contract to join the Indian Cricket League, Yousuf later refused due to pressure from the Pakistan Cricket Board as he would later face a ban by the board. In return the PCB promised to get him into the Indian premier league, however, no team bid for him as he faced litigation from the ICL

In 2008, he once again threatened to join the ICL after the PCB dropped him from their squad. A PCB official was quoted as saying, "We have banned all our cricketers who joined the ICL and if Yousuf also plays for the unauthorised league then he will have to face the same punishment. Yousuf is still our best Test batsman and has a future with the Pakistan team, but not if he joins the ICL."] Yousuf decided to join the ICL again to play mid-way though the second seasonThe Pakistan Cricket Board reacted to the news by banning him from the national team.Yousaf's chances to return to Pakistani cricket improved on 2 February 2009 when a Pakistani court suspended the ban on ICL players

Pakistan Cricket Board recalled batsman Mohammad Yousuf to the squad for their July 2009 Test series in Sri Lanka. Yousuf ended his association with the unsanctioned Indian Cricket League (ICL) in early May, in the hope of earning a recall for his country. His decision to join the ICL was made because of differences with former captain Shoaib Malik, who has since been replaced by Younus Khan. In July 2009, on his first match after returning to Test Cricket since 2007, Yousuf scored a century to announce his return to cricket.

Yousuf informed the Pakistan Cricket Board that he would not be taking part in the Champions Trophy 2008 because it would coincide with the holy month of Ramadan.

He along with another former Indian Cricket League player Abdul Razzaq were awarded ‘A’ category mid-term central contracts by Pakistan Cricket Board after they left Indian Cricket League. A little over one year after being welcomed back by the PCB, Yousuf was made captain of the Test team for the tour of New Zealand after Younus Khan was allowed to take a break.

The Pakistan Cricket Board, on 10 March 2010, banned Yousuf and former captain, Younis Khanfrom playing for the national team indefinitely and imposed one-year bans on Shoaib Malik andRana Naved-ul-Hasan Despite receiving the ban Yousuf said that the series against South Africa in late 2010 could be a possibility. Pakistan then toured England in July 2010 and after losing the first test by 354 runs due to a weak batting line-up, the second innings total of 80 being the lowest total by Pakistan against England. Yousuf announced his return to International Cricket and was placed on the squad. He then required a visa which was granted but there was a concern that Yousuf could not come to England in time for that tour.

Retirement and subsequent return (2010)

On 29 March 2010, Yousuf announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket, just days after the Pakistan Cricket Board imposed an indefinite ban on him. "I received a letter from the PCB that my staying in the team is harmful for the team, so I announce my retirement from international cricket", he said at a press conference in Karachi. On 27 March, Yousuf said that he had decided to retire from international cricket. "Yes, I have decided to retire as Pakistan player and my decision is not an emotional one", Yousuf told press agency AFP, "It's of no use playing if my playing is harmful to the team". He was handed over an indefinite ban by the Pakistan Cricket Board for his disciplinary problems on Pakistan's tour of Australia 2009–2010.

On 1 August 2010, after Pakistan lost the first Test match against England at Trent Bridge,Nottingham, Yousuf was called back in the squad for the rest of the series.[3] He decided not to play the second Test because of tiredness. Shortly after the completion of the second test, Pakistani captain Salman Butt announced that he expected Yousuf to return for the third test.The selectors decided to play Yousuf in a tour match against Worcestershire just before the third Test so that his form and fitness could be checked. Yousuf's form check was positive, because on a day inflicted by rain he managed to score 40*. Yousuf then scored 56 against England in the third Test before being caught and bowled by Graeme Swann; in the process Yousuf became Swann's 100 casualty in Test cricket;the day saw a much improved performance by Pakistan as they were eventually bowled out for 308.

In the same tour of England that summer, he participated in the Twenty20 series as well. Despite being considered an "old boys cricketer" and having participated in only a sole T20I in 2006 and considered one who does not slog as often (notable by the low number of sixes he has scored), Yousuf participated and scored 26 of 21 deliveries.

His return continued well when he scored 46 in the second ODI against England. He consistently scored during the five-match England series as Pakistan lost 3–2. Yousuf was subsequently selected to play for Pakistan in all three formats against South Africa in October 2010; he was considered as an option for becoming captain but the captaincy was given Misbah-ul-Haq Yousuf's batting partner Younis Khan; however still was not selected.

Mohammad Yousuf captained his domestic team, the Lahore Lions, to victory in the 2010–11 Faysal Bank Twenty-20 Cup; the team defeated the Karachi Dolphins in the final. That was also the first time in five years that the trophy had gone to someone besides the Sialkot Stallions.Despite his poor fielding skills, Yousuf was given the award of fielder of the series. He did however injure his hamstring in training for the series against South Africa in October 2010. Chief Selecto rMohsin Khan elected to withdraw Yousuf from the ODI and T20I squads but said that he should be ready to play in the Test match series. Yousuf's replacement in the limited-overs squad was Younus Khan, who had successfully reconciled with the Pakistan Cricket Board. He managed to regain his fitness and participated in the two-match Test series against South Africa. Also, he managed to regain his fitness quickly enough to participate in the final ODI of the five-match series. Yousuf wore a shirt which had his name written on in ink, which was against regulations. The match-referee called him and Yousuf stated that because he came for the test series he did not bring coloured clothing because he did not think that he would play. Subsequently the ICC cleared him of any wrongdoing. Minutes before the toss in the first Test match, Yousuf picked up a groin injury. The injury took two weeks to heal and subsequently Yousuf missed the two-match Test series..Amid his recent spate of injuries, former Pakistan captain Moin Khan suggested that Yousuf should retire from ODIs and T20s and focus on Tests only due to age and consistent injuries.

In January 2012 it was announced that Yousuf was holding talks with Leicestershire over becoming their overseas player for 2012. Talks broke down over Yousuf wanting to take time off for Ramadan. Yousaf received the Pride of Performance award in August 2012.

पिता रेल डिब्बो का शौचालय साफ़ करते, पटरी पर बिखरा संडास साफ़ किया करते, पिता ने देखा बेटे को पढ़ाई लिखाई से ज्यादा क्रिकेट में रूचि है !

आये दिन लोगो की शिकायत आती आपके बेटे की बॉल से हम घायल हुए हमारे घरों की खिड़कियों के शीशे टूटे !
पिता ने बेटे को क्रिकेट सीखने के लिए पास के मैदानों में कोचिंग देने वाले जाट कोच के पास ले गए !

"हुज़ूर मेरा बेटा क्रिकेट सीखना चाहता है उम्मीद है आप सिखाएंगे".... क्या नाम आपका ? मसीह युसूफ !.... काम क्या करते है ? हुज़ूर रेलवे में सफाईकर्मी हूँ !.... ईसाई हो जो कभी चूड़ा भंगी थे ? हां हुज़ूर !.... देखो भाई जात पात तो हम मानते नही लेकिन झाड़ू चलाने वाले हाथ क्रिकेट बैट पकड़ पाएगा उम्मीद कम है, लेकिन तुम्हारे बेटे को हम सीखने मौका जरूर देंगे !
ईसाई चूड़ा उर्फ़ भंगी के बेटे के हाथ में बैठ देखकर बहुतों के छाती पर साँप लेटने लगे, चूड़ा का बेटा अपने हुनर काबिलियत के बल पर अपने लोकल टीम का विस्फोटक बल्लेबाज निकला जिसे पूरी दुनिया युसूफ युहाना के नाम से जानती है !
बेहतरीन प्रदर्शन देखकर लाहौर के एक जिमखाना ने युसूफ युहाना को अपने टीम में लिया.... यहां से युसूफ युहाना ने पीछे मुड़कर नहीं देखा, अपने कॉलेज से खेलते हुए पाकिस्तान के क्रिकेट टीम में चुने गए !
पाकिस्तान के ईसाई समुदाय की छाती गर्व से चौड़ी हो गयी, पाकिस्तान के पंजाब और सिंध प्रांत में साफ़ सफाई कूड़ा करकट उठाने का काम ईसाई समुदाय करते हैं, पाकिस्तान में ईसाई समुदाय को हेय दृष्टि से देखा जाता है 99% ईसाई चूड़ा जाति से हैं जो कभी हिन्दू थे, वर्ण व्यवस्था से बचने के लिए ईसाई धर्म अपना लिया !
लेकिन युसूफ युहाना को अपने ईसाई होने का गर्व नही था, धन सोहरत नाम कमाने के बाद युसूफ युहाना ने इस्लाम अपना लिया.... सोचा फूल टाइम कप्तान बनेंगे लेकिन केवल एक ऑस्ट्रेलिया दौरे के लिए कप्तान बने !
उनके द्वारा इस्लाम धर्म अपनाने पर उनके माता पिता और ईसाई समुदाय बहुत आहात हुआ !
चूड़ा ईसाई समुदाय के पास केवल एक हीरो था अब वो भी उनके समुदाय का नही !
युसूफ युहाना मुस्लिम बनकर किसी संस्था से जुड़े हैं जो इस्लाम का प्रचार करती है, ईसाई चूड़ा समुदाय आज भी लाहौर कराची के सड़कों पर कूड़ा करकट उठा रहे हैं !
इस समुदाय की सुध लेने वाला कोई नही है, शिक्षा स्वास्थ्य आवास समान अधिकार के मामले में ईसाई चूड़ा समुदाय काफी पिछड़ा है !

India’s Blind Cricket World Cup Winner Naresh Tumda works as a labourer to make ends meet

Naresh Tumda was a part of the Indian Cricket team that lifted the Blind World Cup in 2018 by defeating Pakistan at Sharjah.

Winning a World Cup for the country is arguably the most cherishable moment for any cricketer. It is the most special achievement of their careers and one that they go on to celebrate for years. However, life had some different scripts for Naresh Tumda who was a part of the Indian Cricket team that lifted the Blind World Cup in 2018 by defeating Pakistan at Sharjah. The youngster has been struggling to make ends meet post the World Cup victory as he is now working as a labourer to survive.

Naresh Tumda started playing cricket at the age of just five and had displayed his sheer flair by earning the tag of a talented cricketer. Owing to his skill set and flair he became part of the Gujarat team in the year 2014. Tumda soon received his national call and got the opportunity to play for India. Unfortunately due to the uncertainties of his economic conditions, he is now forced to work as a labourer to earn his livelihood.

With the aim of ironing out his many problems, Tumda applied for a lot of government jobs but did not receive any responses from them. This made the Indian cricketer appeal to the government to provide him with some help. “I earn Rs 250 a day. I urge the government to give me a job so that I can earn my livelihood,” Tumda said as reported by yahoo cricket

The numerous hurdles in Naresh Tumda’s path

Naresh Tumda has the responsibility of taking care of five people in his family. He is the sole bread-earner and had asserted that the money from selling vegetables isn’t enough to cater to the needs of the family. He thus decided to work as a labourer and lift bricks. The 29-year-old has to toil hard and face these hurdles as his parents are old and cannot lend any helping hand. Tumda’s struggle makes one ponder about the conditions of the specially-abled cricketers in India.

“When the Indian cricket team wins the World Cup, the government and corporations rain money on them. Are we lesser sportsmen because we are blind? Society should treat us equally,” Naresh Tumda had told Times of India.

Early life

Palwankar Baloo was born into a Chambhar caste family in Dharwad, Bombay Presidency, British India. His father was a sepoy in the 112th Infantry Regiment of British Indian Army. Baloo played cricket with equipment left behind by officers stationed in Pune.

Baloo had three brothers, Palwankar ShivramVithal Palwankar and Palwankar Ganpat, who also became known as cricketers.

Cricket career

He started working as a groundsman maintaining the pitch for the Parsis in Pune and later at the British Poona Gymkhana where he occasionally bowled to J.G Grieg, an English batsman. He learned spin bowling.and because of Grieg's influence he began to play for the Pune Hindu club. The club had been reluctant to let him play because of his "untouchable" caste..

In 1896, he moved to Bombay and was selected by Parmanandas Jivandas Hindu Gymkhana and played both Bombay Quadrangular tournaments.

He was employed by the Bombay Berar and Central Indian Railways, and also played for the latter’s corporate cricket team.

He played in the all-Indian team led by the Maharaja of Patiala during their tour of England in 1911. The tour was a failure, but Baloo's outstanding performance was well praised.

Throughout his career in cricket, Baloo was not perceived as equal due to his dalit background. He faced much discrimination because of this. Whilst he played at Pune, during the tea interval at matches his tea was brought outside to him in a disposable cup. He could not drink it in the pavilion. His lunch was served at a separate table. If he wanted to wash his face a fellow Dalit attendant would bring him water in a corner. Things seem to have improved when he moved to Bombay and afterwards but he was denied the captaincy of the Hindu team in the Quadrangular Tournament.

He is considered to be one of the greatest cricketers in Indian cricket history.
Politics

He was greatly influenced by Gandhian ideology and worked to bring Home Rule to India.

In the 1910s, Palwankar Baloo met Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and became his close friend. They admired each other and worked to improve the Dalit community. However in 1932, Baloo opposed Dr. Ambedkar's demand for separate electorates for the depressed classes. Later, he also signed the "Rajah-Moonje Pact" in opposition. He described conversion of Dalits to other religions as 'suicidal' when Ambedkar expressed his intention to convert to Buddhism.

In 1933, Baloo unsuccessfully contested the Bombay Municipality constituency on Hindu Mahasabha ticket. Four years later he joined Congress and contested the Bombay Legislative Assembly elections against Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, but lost.

He died in 1955. His funeral was attended by many national leaders as well as cricketers

Profile
A slow left-arm spinner, Delhi's Pawan Negi, burst into recognition following a whopping Rs 8.5 crores deal with the Delhi Daredevils during the auctions ahead of the 2016 Indian Premier League (IPL). The deal came about after a slew of impressive performances for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during the preceding tournament. This wasn't his first stint with the Daredevils, he had previously featured for them in the 2012 and 2013 tournament before switching allegiance to the MS Dhoni led CSK.

As it happens, big deals brings in the pressure to perform in an extraordinary manner and that eventually leads to disappointment. Negi failed to live up to expectations and a below par season led to the franchise letting him go ahead of the next auction in 2017. He was then brought by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) for Rs 1 crore. As luck would have it, he turned out to be a more than useful buy, finishing as the top wicket-taker, with 16 from 12 matches. The encouraging returns meant that the franchise had no second thoughts when they used their 'Right to Match' card while retaining him for the 2018 edition of the tournament.

The left-arm spinner has featured in a handful of first-class and List-A games, but it was in the shortest format of the game that he really prospered. While left-arm spin remains his primary domain, he is a handy batsman as well, capable of sending a few over the ropes - as he regularly did for CSK, during the 2015 edition of the IPL. His ability was noticed and he went on to play a solitary Twenty20 match for India - against United Arab Emirates (UAE), during the 2016 Asia Cup.

Pravin Vijay Tambe (born 8 October 1971) is an Indian cricketer. Tambe made his IPL debut at the age of 41.

Early career

When Pravin was young, he wanted to be a fast bowler but it was his Orient Shipping captain Ajay Kadam who asked him to bowl leg-spin. He was part of Shivaji Park Gymkhana team where his leg-spin impressed Sandeep Patil as well. "Sandeep Patil rated Pravin’s flipper highly," said Pravin's father Vijay in an interview with CricketCountry.

Indian Premier League

Pravin had an interesting twist to his life. A man who never played for his city, was elected for the Indian Premier League. "For someone who has not even got a chance to play first-class cricket and has worked hard all these years in Dr HD Kanga Memorial Cricket League, it is terrific story" says Rahul Dravid, his chief mentor at Rajasthan Royals.

Former club-mate and Mumbai selector Abey Kuruvilla also revealed that Pravin has only peaked over the last 8 years, ever since he switched from bowling medium pace to leg spin.[4] He received the Golden Wicket award (for taking most wickets in the tournament) in Champions League 2013.

Pravin took a hat-trick against Kolkata Knight Riders on 5 May 2014 in Ahmedabad which earned him the man of the match award. He also got the purple cap[clarification needed] for the first time in his career by becoming the highest wicket taker in IPL 2014 (till the 25th match).

In February 2017, Pravin was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team for the 2017 Indian Premier League for 10 lakhs.[6] In the 2020 IPL auction, he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders ahead of the 2020 Indian Premier League.

T10 Cricket League

In season two of the T10 League season, Pravin played for the Sindhis team. He became first ever player to take a hat-trick in 10 overs cricket format. He also became the first player to take 5 wicket haul in this format.

Domestic and T20 franchise career

Pravin received his maiden call for Mumbai cricket team squad in 2013–14 Ranji Trophy and made his debut in the next round against Orissa cricket team.[9] He made his List A debut for Mumbai in the 2016–17 Vijay Hazare Trophy on 25 February 2017.

In July 2020, Pravin was named in the Trinbago Knight Riders squad for the 2020 Caribbean Premier League (CPL). He became the first Indian cricketer to get a contract in the CPL. On 26 August 2020, he played in the match between Trinbago Knight Riders and the St Lucia Zouks, to become the first ever Indian cricketer to play in the CPL.

Controversy

In August 2015, Pravin played in a private T20 tournament in the United States. He was member of a team that included Mohammad Ashraful who was serving a five-year ban imposed on him at that time by the Bangladesh Cricket Board for connections to a match fixing scandal during the 2012–13 Bangladesh Premier League.

Vikram Solanki

Vikram Singh Solanki (born 1 April 1976) is an English cricket coach and former first-class cricketer. In limited over international cricket, he played over 50 One Day Internationals for England as a batsman and occasional off-spinner.

In county cricket, he played for Surrey, having previously spent 17 years at Worcestershire. In 2007, he became the 24th Worcestershire batsman to pass 10,000 career runs for the county. He also captained Worcestershire from 2005 to 2010, before resigning mid-season.

In September 2015 he announced his retirement as a player. After obtaining an LLB from the Open University, Vikram then studied the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law.

In January 2018, Solanki was appointed deputy head coach at Surrey CCC, and in June 2020 he was promoted to head coach by Surrey's Director of Cricket, Alec Stewart, in succession to Michael di Venuto.

In addition to Solanki's playing and coaching roles, he has also held cricket administration roles. In March 2009 he was appointed Chairman of The Professional Cricketer's Association, where he also held the role of Interim Chief Executive and in March 2017 he became FICA President, succeeding former West Indian International, Jimmy Adams.

Early life and domestic career

Solanki was born in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, but moved to Wolverhampton with his family at the age of eight. Solanki played junior and senior cricket for Wolverhampton cricket club and education from Regis School, Wolverhampton.

He made his first-class debut for Worcestershire in 1995, although he had played one-day cricket for the county two seasons earlier. In 1996 he was awarded the NBC Denis Compton Award. Although principally taken on by Worcestestershire as a batsman, on his first-class debut, due to there being no fit spinners available, he was selected to bowl his off breaks — something he had done with a degree of success the previous winter while on tour with England U19. Although generally an occasional bowler, Solanki produced a ten-wicket haul, five wickets in each innings, against Lancashire at Old Trafford in 1996. In 1999 he achieved a batting average of over 40, something he repeated in 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2006. 2006 was also the first season since 2000 in which he managed to top 1,000 first-class runs, making 1,252.

Together with Worcestershire teammate Kabir Ali, Solanki accepted an offer to play for Rajasthan in the Indian Ranji Trophy during the 2006–07 season. Solanki joined the Indian Cricket League (ICL) in 2007, he made six appearances for the Mumbai Champs in his single season of ICL.

England A tours

Solanki was picked for two England A tours: to South Africa and Zimbabwe in 1998–99, and to Bangladesh and New Zealand in 1999–2000. His fine performances on these latter tours led to his making his full One Day International debut against the South Africans later that same winter. However, he was unable to translate his A-team feats into runs for the senior England side, and after eight innings yielding just 96 runs, he was dropped and not picked again for more than three years.

English county cricket

Solanki was also an occasional bowler of off-spin for Worcestershire, although he has only bowled a handful of overs for England. Worcestershire appointed Solanki as captain of the county for 2005, succeeding the retiring Steve Rhodes. In September 2006 he agreed an extension to his contract which saw him remain at the county until 2009. Following a defeat by Glamorgan on 12 August 2010, he announced his resignation as captain with immediate effect stating that "it was time for somebody else to be at the helm".

After showing good form in the first half of the 2009 season Solanki was called up to the England Lions squad for their fixture against Australia.

In July 2012, it was announced that Solanki would leave Worcestershire at the expiry of his contract in September, and join Surrey on a two-year contract. He announced his retirement from the first-class game at the end of the 2015 season, during which he played in only one County Championship match.

International career

Solanki represented England on 51 occasions in one-day cricket, but has not been selected for a Test Match. His natural talent only rarely came through into his performances for his country, and his England batting average was in the mid-20s. He made two international hundreds, 106 off 108 balls against South Africa at The Oval in 2003 (when he shared an opening partnership of 200 with Marcus Trescothick), and exactly 100 off 93 balls versus Zimbabwe at Bulawayo in 2004/05.

Solanki played in four of the five One Day Internationals when England toured Pakistan in December 2005, his best score of 49 also being the highest in England's innings in the final match, which England went on to win by 6 wickets. However, Solanki was not selected for the team to go on the tour to India, instead being chosen to captain the 'A' team in the West Indies.

On 1 July 2006, Solanki took his first wicket in ODIs at Headingley, removing Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya for 152. It was something of a hollow triumph, however, as Jayasuriya and Upul Tharanga (109) had put on 286, a world record for the first wicket in ODIs, and England were crushed as Sri Lanka scored 324/2 to win by eight wickets in just 37.3 overs. Solanki made history against Australia in 2005 when he became the first supersub in a One Day International, replacing Simon Jones to strengthen England's tail after a batting collapse; coming to the crease at no.8 with England 93/6, Solanki made 53 not out. He also took part in the final two matches of England's time in the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship, replacing the injured Matt Prior. Keeping wicket and opening the batting in both of his matches in that tournament, he took two catches in the first, conceded no byes in either match, and scored 24 and 43. Those were his last international appearances.

Wisden overview

A feisty allrounder who opens both the batting and the bowling for Railways in India's Ranji Trophy, Sanjay Bangar is an exciting prospect - and something of a lucky mascot for India, who won five and drew one of his first six Tests, including three rare overseas victories. Bangar bowls wicket-to-wicket at a lively pace, and can move the ball both ways. As a batsman, he has been a steady accumulator of runs at domestic level, but also has an impressive fourth gear: his lusty hitting at No. 6 helped the Board President's XI to a victory in the 1998 Wills Trophy. An untimely injury kept him out of cricket for a while, but he returned in style, with a fine hundred against Zimbabwe in only his second Test, batting at No. 7, before moving to the top of the order to play a crucial role in India's historic innings victory over England at Headingley in 2002.(Amit Varma)

He was taken to a health camp organised nearby, and during the treatment the doctors realised the possibility of restoring sight in his right eye. He was subsequently operated upon in Bangalore and was able to get 60% of his vision in his right eye.

His father died soon after, and he was sent to the Shri Sharada Devi School for the Blind in Shimoga. He learnt to play cricket while at the school. He worked in the fields during the summer holidays to fund his cricketing ambitions. His mother died when he was 12. While not playing, he works as a sports coordinator for an NGO called Samarthanam, which funds the Cricket Association for the Blind in India. He has two daughters.

Sudhir Sakharam Naik pronunciation (help·info) (born 21 February 1945, in Bombay) is a former Indian cricketer who played in 3 Tests and 2 ODIs in 1974 in the Indian cricket team. A courageous right-hand opening batsman, Sudhir Naik went as one of the candidates for the opening batsman's slot on the 1974 tour of England. He did well in the first-class matches, scoring 730 runs (40.55) and forced his way into the team for the final Test at Edgbaston. Out for 4 in the first innings, Naik batted in gritty fashion in a losing cause in the second innings to top-score with 77. This was few days after he was caught shop-lifting two pair of socks at M&S on the Oxford Street. He pleaded guilty under pressure from the Indian Government and BCCI. Back home he played in two more Tests against West Indies. This turned out to be his last season played for India.

For Bombay, however, Naik did very well and in the Ranji Trophy he scored 2687 runs (40.10) with a highest score of 200 not out against Baroda in 1973–74. But perhaps Naik's biggest distinction was that he led Bombay to an unexpected Ranji Trophy triumph in 1970–71. It was a badly depleted side with the stars being away with the Indian team in the West Indies. But Naik making adroit use of the limited resources proved himself to be an astute captain.

He has a much extensive and impressive career in the domestic Indian cricket in varied capacities of cricketer, coach and ground-curator.

He started his career by playing for Bombay University and later went on to captain the Tata Oil Mills team where he was an employee. He is a rare combination of a cricketer and an organic chemist with first class in MSc in Organic Chemistry from Ruparel College in Bombay.

Beside playing for India, he also captained Bombay in the Ranji Trophy for several years. He remains active in the game as the coach at his own National Cricket Club, Mumbai which has produced star cricketers for India like Zaheer Khan and Wasim Jaffer and many like Rajesh Pawar, Raju Sutar and Paras Mhambrey who are past and present players for Mumbai.

Since 2005 he has an added responsibility on his shoulders. He is the Ground In charge at the Wankhede Cricket Stadium taking care of the wicket and the outfield, in preparation for cricket matches. He prepared the much-praised pitch and outfield at the Wankhede Cricket Ground in Mumbai on which the final of the 2011 World Cup was played. India won the World Cup and Naik's efforts were clearly one of the most important factors in the entertaining day's play.

Currently Naik is overlooking the preparation of grounds and pitches of the west zone in the capacity of West Zone In-charge of BCCI's Ground and Pitch Committee.

She made her international debut in April 2013 against Bangladesh and has played two Women's Twenty20 International and one Women's One Day International match. At the domestic level, she has played for South Zone and Andhra.

Biography

Sneha Deepthi was born in 1996 in VisakhapatnamAndhra Pradesh.[citation needed] Although not interested in any kind of sport in her childhood, she started playing gully cricket along with her father and brother. At the insistence of her father—an employee of the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant, she started to play the game seriously, and by the time when she reached fourth grade she started taking coaching classes. Her father enrolled Sneha Deepthi and her younger sister Ramya Deepika to a summer coaching camp. The family shifted from Ukkunagaram (Visakhapatnam Steel Plant) to Pothinamallayya Palem, another suburb of Visakhapatnam, in order to ensure that they receive proper training under their coach Krishna Rao and make use of the facilities at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

In 2013, Deepthi became the first cricketer from the Andhra women's cricket team to score a double century; she made 203 not out against East Godavari in a senior women inter-district match. She was selected for the national team for the 2012–13 home series against Bangladesh. At 16 years and 204 days, Deepthi became the youngest player to represent the national team in Women's Twenty20 International cricket. In August 2015, she made 350 against Srikakulam, the highest individual score by a woman cricketer for Andhra Cricket Association (ACA), against Srikakulam in a league match of ACA North Zone inter-district women's tournament. She also picked up two wickets for four runs in the match.

Sadashiv Ganpatrao "Sadu" Shinde (18 August 1923, Bombay – 22 June 1955, Bombay) was an Indian cricketer who played in seven Tests from 1946 to 1952. His daughter, Pratibha Pawar, is the wife of politician Sharad Pawar.

A leg-spinner, Shinde was described as "frail and willowy". Apart from the leg break and the conventional googly, Shinde could also bowl a different googly. According to Sujit Mukherjee, "coming after the orthodox wrist-crooked wrong-'un, this delivery invariably sprang a nasty surprise. Ripped off the top of the third finger, it hastened unexpectedly off the pitch. Its tendency to pitch short nullified its efficacy as secret weapon but was practically unplayable when properly pitched."

Shinde's first performance of note in first class cricket was a 5 for 186 that took in 75.5 overs for Maharashtra against Bombay in 1943-44 as Vijay Merchant made 359* for Bombay. He toured England with the Indian team in 1946 and took 39 wickets in tour matches. In his only appearance in a Test match, at Lord's, he was involved in a stand of 43 for the last wicket with Rusi Modi, but did little with the ball. In the next five years, he played in only one more Test.

His one major success in Tests came against England at Delhi in 1951-52. He was brought on to bowl as the third change just before lunch on the first day of the series. Immediately after lunch he bowled Don Kenyon middle stump with a googly, and followed with Jack Robertson lbw and Donald Carr caught by wicket-keeper Nana Joshi off a leg-break. He was 8-2-16-3 at this point. He took three more wickets after tea as England were bowled out for 203 five minutes before close. Shinde's figures were 6/91. India took a handsome first innings lead and had two days to bowl England out in the second innings. But Shinde had seven chances missed off his bowling, most crucially by Joshi and the substitute Dattajirao Gaekwad, and England managed to save the match. Shinde himself missed a run out.

Shinde found a place in the team to England in 1952 (possibly at the expense of Subhash Gupte). He took 39 more wickets in tour matches but the wicket of Peter May in Leeds was to be his last in Tests.

Given a minimum of ten innings, Shinde is one of only two Test cricketers whose batting averages exceeded their highest score. The other was the Pakistani cricketer, Antao D'Souza.

Shinde represented Maharashtra, Bombay and Baroda in Ranji Trophy and took 230 wickets in first class matches. He died of typhoid at the age of 32. Shinde is the father-in-law of Sharad Pawar, the former President of BCCI.

– First Dalit Indian Cricketer & Politician”

Born on 19,March 1876 in Dharwad,Karnataka and his father was a sepoy in the 112th Infantry Regiment.His family name of Palwankar came from his native village of Palwan.His first job was tending the pitch at a cricket club for Parsis in Pune(Poona). He also occasionally bowled to the members, and was paid Rs.3 a month. Around 1892, he moved to the Poona Club,a cricket club for Europeans, where his duties included rolling and sweeping the pitch,erecting the practice nets and occasionally marking the tennis courts for Rs.4 a month.One of the Europeans,Mr Tross, encouraged Baloo to bowl to him in the nets. His skill at slow left-arm bowling was enough to encourage other members to bat against him for practice, in particular the fine batsman Captain J.G.Greig.In time,he was bowling to them regularly, his bowling important practice for the club members. Despite bowling for hundreds of hours, Baloo later lamented that not once did any of the club members offer to allow him to bat—a role then considered the preserve of the aristocratic classes.Anundocumented story states that he was paid 8 annas by JG Greig every time he dismissed him. Baloo thus perfected his bowling, spending hours in the nets bowling to the Europeans.A Hindu club in Pune challenged the Europeans to a cricket match, creating a dilemma over whether or not to include the obviously talented Baloo in their side. The (high-caste) Brahmins in the Hindu side were against it, but some Telugu members argued for his inclusion, as did Captain Greig. This seemed to settle the matter, for Baloo was invited to play with the Hindu Club.On the field, Baloo played cricket as an equal, but off it he was segregated from the Europeans and the higher caste Hindus during rest and meal breaks. While his teammates dined inside the pavilion on fine china, Baloo was left outside to eat and drink out of disposable clay crockery. Despite this treatment, he bowled well and took plenty of wickets, leading his club to several victories almost single handedly.Over the next few years, Baloo slowly earned the respect of his Hindu club teammates. As his standing in the Poona cricket community grew due to his obvious talents, these barriers broke down and he was eventually accorded the right to gather with his fellow players off the field.

In 1896, Baloo chose to move to Bombay with his family – at least partly because of the severe plague which broke out in the region, but also because of the greater opportunities for cricket in the larger city. There he served with the Army and played for the newly formed Parmanandas Jivandas Hindu Gymkhana club. The captain of the Gymkhana cricket team wanted Baloo’s bowling skills, but had to overrule the protests of several other players who objected to Baloo’s caste. When he left the Army, Bombay Berar and Central Indian Railways gave him a job, allowing him to play for their corporate cricket team as well as the Gymkhana.He was regarded as best spinner of world at that time.In 1901 he played with team of Maharaja of Nelore in a professional match in Bengal.Baloo played for the Hindu side in the famous 1906 and 1907 matches against the Europeans of the Bombay Gymkhana, in which the Hindus defeated the Europeans by 109 runs and 238 runs respectively. These matches led to various newspaper commentaries, of two types: ones proclaiming a victory over caste prejudice as the united Hindu team triumphed, and others painting them in nationalist tones as a victory of the natives against European rule.Baloo was chosen for an all-Indian team of Maharaja of Patialato tour England in 1911, consisting of Parsis, Hindus, and Muslims, captained by a Sikh. In results terms, the tour was a failure, but Baloo was the outstanding performer for the tourists, taking 114 wickets at an average of 18.84, 75 of which were in first class matches.From 1912 to 1919, Baloo was a regular player in the Bombay Quadrangular tournament, between the Hindu, Parsi, Muslim, and European Gymkhanas. Despite regular calls for him to be named captain of the Hindu team, there was still enough caste-based prejudice within the club to prevent it. Three of his brothers, Shivram, Ganpat and Vithal, also played in the Quadrangular, and Palwankar Vithal eventually captained the Hindu team.In 1920, Baloo was dropped from the side to play the Muslims.Rank and file members of the club were outraged and at a meeting after the match expressed their displeasure so vehemently that Deodhar was removed and Baloo invited to play again for the Hindu Gymkhana, as vice captain. During the next match against the Parsis, Deodhar’s replacement, M. D.Pai (also a Brahmin), deliberately left the field for an extended period, allowing Baloo to direct the team in his absence.Inthis manner, Baloo broke the barrier against members of his caste acting as leaders, at a time when Mahatma Gandhi was just beginning his campaign against the stigma of Untouchability.Baloo played 33 first class matches, from 1905/06 to 1920/21, taking 179 wickets at an average of 15.21 and considered as “first Dalit to put an impact on any sports in Indian history.”

Late in his cricket career, Baloo met and befriended B. R. Ambedkar, who went on to become the greatest leader of the Dalit and pre-eminent in the struggle to overturn the caste system. Ambedkar considered Baloo a hero of the Dalit, naming him as an inspiration to himself and others of their caste, but over the following years a rift was to grow between the men over the methods of dismantling the caste system.Baloo went on to become involved in politics, strongly supporting Gandhi’s efforts to bring home rule to India and to fully integrate Dalit into Indian society. Ambedkar campaigned for Dalit to be assigned special representation in the legislature. The British Government assented, creating a Communal Award under which Dalit would be elected from a separate electorate composed only of Dalit voters.Gandhi protested against this, arguing that full integration was the only way to remove the stigma of Untouchability, and special representation would lead only to resentment and civil war. Gandhi then announced his decision to fast until death in protest, beginning on 20 September 1932. Baloo released a press statement stating his admiration for “the spirit in which Mr. Gandhi has proclaimed his intention of sacrificing his life for the sake of the Depressed Classes.” Under pressure from Congress, Baloo told Ambedkar that he “was also a leader of the Untouchables and also had an equal right to express his views.” Ambedkar was opposed by M.C.Rajah and P.Baloo who joined hands with Congress and Hindu Mahasabha and signed a pact against the position of Ambedkar called ‘Rajah-Moonje Pact’. Ambedkar negotiated with Gandhi under pressure and signed ‘Poona Pact’, allowing Dalit more seats, but with all Hindus allowed to vote for them. The British Government quickly ratified the agreement and Gandhi ended his fast on 26 September.In October 1933, Baloo stood for election for a seat on the Bombay Municipality, on a Hindu Mahasabha ticket. His opponent was a high caste Hindu, well liked by many sections of the community. Baloo lost 2,179 votes to 3,030.In 1937, Baloo ran against Ambedkar for a designated “Scheduled Caste” seat in the Bombay Legislative Assembly. Ambedkar defeated Baloo by the close margin of 13,245 votes to 11,225.Baloo died in Bombay in July 1955. He was remembered most fondly for his great skill on the cricket field, but his passing was also marked by a large crowd including members of the Bombay Legislative Assembly at his cremation, recognising the role he played in overcoming the chains of Untouchability.

He is one of the three cricketers to have batted in every position, from the first to the last, during his Test career.

His son Ashok Mankad also played Test Cricket for India. Rahul Mankad, another son, played first-class cricket.

Mankad's best performance was against England at Lord's in 1952. In the first innings he top-scored with 72. During England's first innings, he bowled 73 overs and took 5 wickets for 196 runs. In India's second innings in that Test match, he top-scored again with 184 runs out of India's total of 378. Though England won the game easily, Mankad's all-round performance salvaged India's pride in a series where they were heavily overmatched. Mankad was the first player in more than 30 years to score a 100 and take five wickets in the same Test and the first Indian to achieve this feat. As such, he is one of only three non-England 'away' players whose name appears on both batting and bowling honours boards at Lords. (The other two are Keith Miller and Sir Gary Sobers).

Also memorable was his role earlier in the same year against England in Madras. He took 8/52 in England's first innings and 4/53 in the second helping India beat England for the very first time in a Test match.

In 1956 he hit 231 against New Zealand at Chennai and together with Pankaj Roy established the world record opening partnership of 413 runs which stood for 52 years. His score was a Test record for India at the time and would remain so until it was broken in 1983 by Sunil Gavaskar.

Mankad caused controversy in 1947/48 on India's tour of Australia, when he ran out Bill Brown backing up in the second Test. In other words, he broke the wicket at the non-striker's end during his run-up while the batsman at that end was out of his ground. He had done the same thing to Brown in the game against an Australian XI earlier on the tour, but his running out of Brown infuriated the Australian media, and running someone out in this way is now referred to as "Mankading"

However, Don Bradman in his autobiography defended Mankad, saying:

For the life of me, I can't understand why [the press] questioned his sportsmanship. The laws of cricket make it quite clear that the nonstriker must keep within his ground until the ball has been delivered. If not, why is the provision there which enables the bowler to run him out? By backing up too far or too early, the nonstriker is very obviously gaining an unfair advantage.While perfectly legal, some contend that by convention, a bowler should warn a batsman who persists in backing up before dismissing him in that fashion. It should be noted Mankad himself warned Brown before dismissing him in this fashion. Courtney Walsh likewise received praise for warning rather than dismissing Saleem Jaffar, who was backing up during the 1987 World Cup.

Three other instances of 'Mankading' have taken placed in Test matches. These involved Ian Redpath (Australia) by Charlie Griffith (West Indies) in 1968-69; Derek Randall (England) by Ewen Chatfield (New Zealand) in 1978-79; and Sikander Bakht (Pakistan) by Alan Hurst (Australia) in 1978-79.

Vinod Kambli first came into limelight in February 1988, with a world record 664-run partnership with Sachin Tendulkar during the semi-final of the Harris Shield tournament, an inter-school competition, playing for Shardashram Vidyamandir School against St. Xavier's High School. The duo were stopped by their coach Ramakant Achrekar, who forced them to declare the innings. He made his first-class debut during the 1989-90 season, playing for Mumbai.

His stroke-play impressed the national selectors and he made his ODI debut in 1991, against Pakistan at Sharjah. He was also part of the 1992 World Cup side. Kambli hit a gritty hundred, his first in ODIs, against England in 1993, but India lost the game off the last ball. He was in good touch in 1993 and 1994, registering 10 scores of 50 or more. He played a crucial knock against Zimbabwe in the 1996 World Cup, to bail India out of trouble after they were reduced to three down for next to nothing. He went on to score an aggressive hundred, his second and last in ODIs, and helped India post a good total. Eventually, the bowlers were able to restrict Zimbabwe and save India from the blushes. However, he was dropped from the side after the World Cup and since then, he could never cement his place. His form dipped soon after and he managed to score only one 50+ score in his last 22 ODIs, before being dropped for one last time in 2000.

Kambli made his Test debut in 1993 against England, against whom he hit his maiden double-hundred, in just his second Test match. He followed it up with another double-hundred against Zimbabwe in the next match, before scoring a hundred against Sri Lanka to make history by becoming the only cricket to score 100+ in three innings against three different opponents. Although he had a bright start to his Test career, Kambli considered for Tests after 1995, meaning he had only 17 Tests against his name.

Kambli continued to play in the domestic circuit and in 2002, followed the footsteps of Pravin Amre by joining South African domestic side, Boland. Eventually, he announced in his retirement from all forms of cricket in 2011. The same year, Kambli controversially revealed on national television that he doubted the way in which India played the 1996 World Cup semi-final. He alleged that it was decided in the team meeting that India would bat if they won the toss, but captain Mohammad Azharuddin chose to field. However, Kambi's allegations were rubbished by Azharuddin himself, team manager Ajit Wadekar and a few cricketers.

Kambli joined politics and contested in the 2009 Vidhan Sabha Elections, but lost it. he also supported Anna Hazare's campaign, India against Corruption. Kambli has also acted in two Hindi films, Annarth and Pal Pal Dil Ke Ssaat. He has also appeared in a few reality shows.

Allrounder currently playing first class in India for Chhattisgarh State team. A very self-motivated and determind sportsman who has been a late developer to first class cricket but made an instant impact with both bat and ball.

Known as a powerful hard hitting middle order batsman he has been used anywhere from 3 to 8 depending on each situation. He has been the go to player on the shorter formats of the game but lately has built up an excellent record in the longer format of the game where at times he has opened the bowling with his very clever variation and seam bowling.

A player who come highly recommended by his state skipper Harpreet Singh Bhatia who has been a major force at first class level and in the Uk. Vishal completed his first season in the Uk this summer playing for Colwyn Bay CC in the strong Liverpool league scoring 547 runs at 32.18 and chipped in with 22 wickets at 21.68. Looking to return for a full season in 2022 if you are looking for a hard hitting batting allrounder then look no further.
