Profile

The younger brother of Madhav Apte, Arvind Apte was taken on the tour of England in 1959 as a reserve opener, based on his fine performances at home. An attacking opening batsman with a wide range of strokes, mostly cavalier, he met with modest success on the tour scoring 881 runs (27.53) with three centuries. His best score was 165 against Derbyshire. Given a chance in the third Test at Leeds following an injury to Nari Contractor, Apte was out for 8 and 7, falling to Alan Moss both times. He continued to play first-class cricket till the early 70s, finishing with an aggregate of 2782 runs (33.51) which included six centuries.
