Profile

An attractive right-hand middle-order batsman cast in the GR Viswanath mould, the stockily built Ashok Malhotra never really did justice to his talent in Test cricket and his overall figures are disappointing. Picked to play for the country on the basis of some excellent performances in domestic matches, Malhotra did nothing of note in his first few Tests and was discarded. He toured West Indies in 1983 without making the Test team. Back in the squad against West Indies at home in 1983-84, Malhotra fared better with scores of 32, 72*, 20 and 30 (top score in a total of 90). He was then dropped again before returning to play in one Test against England in 1984-85. He was a member of the Indian team that won the World Championship of Cricket in Australia in 1985.
