Profile

A dashing strokeplayer and capable wicketkeeper (although he won his first cap as a specialist batsman), Chandrakant Pandit was one among several young players in the mid 80s who were in the running to take over the gloves from Syed Kirmani. But he lost out, and in three of the five Tests he played, he was selected as a middle-order batsman, although in the two Tests he did keep in (when Kiran More was unavailable on the 1991-92 tour of Australia) he showed his skill by taking eleven catches. Pandit's attractive batting style saw to it that for some time he was a regular member of the Indian one-day side. After his international career ground to a halt, Pandit joined Madhya Pradesh as a professional and enjoyed some good seasons with the bat. He went on to become a successful coach, guiding Mumbai to two consecutive Ranji Trophy triumphs in 2003 and 2004. In August 2005 he took over as Maharashtra's coach.
