Gundibail Sunderam, who made his Test debut for India, in 1955, picked up three wickets from two Tests. Makarand Waingankar, writing for the Times of India, says that Sunderam, who troubled some of the best batsmen in first-class cricket, didn't have an impact in Tests because he was over bowled in first-class cricket, which cost him his fitness.
Sunderam continued to live life with zeal even after he stopped playing cricket till he died at 80, two years back. A bowler who could have achieved all the heights in the world, Sunderam suffered because he was too much of a gentleman. He said yes when he could have politely said no. Greed has spoilt many a thing in the world, and sadly for GR Sunderam, it was other's greed that ruined him.
