Full name MO Srinivasan
Born August 3, 1918
Died 2004, India (aged 85 years days)
Major teams India, Madras
Batting style Right-hand bat
Fielding position Wicketkeeper
A different wicketkeeper was played in each of the three `Tests' against the Australian Services side, which played in India on their return from England in 1945. And MO Srinivasan was the first of the three tried out, in the opening game of the series at Bombay. Going in at No 11, he made 0 and 4, being unbeaten on both occasions. That remained his only international experience. An efficient wicketkeeper and a useful tail end batsman, he played ten games for Madras in the Ranji Trophy in the forties. He is the father of MO Parthasarathy who played for Tamil Nadu and Bihar in the seventies. (Partab Ramchand)
