KP Bhaskar was a prolific run-scorer for a strong Delhi side during the 80s but was never selected for India, despite remaining on the periphery for years. He was a standby for India's tour of Sri Lanka in 1985 but that was as close as he came to national selection.
A stylish right-hand batsman with a reputation for coming good in a crisis, Bhaskar remained a dominant presence on the domestic circuit until 1991. After retiring from the first-class game in 1994-95 Bhaskar served on the panel of match referees in the domestic circuit. In October 2007 he was appointed coach of Rajasthan.
