Profile

As a teenager, Prakash Bhandari was an exciting prospect. A hard hitting right hand batsman and a more than useful off break bowler, Bhandari was a star at the university level. Not yet 20, he was picked for the tour of Pakistan in 1954-55 and made his debut in the final Test of the series. He then played against New Zealand at New Delhi in 1955-56 when coming in at No 8 he helped Nadkarni to add 73 runs for the seventh wicket, his share being a bright 39. He again played in one Test against Australia at Calcutta the following season without much success and was never picked after that.
