Profile

An attacking right handed batsman and a brilliant fielder, Gadkari's appearances in the Indian team were rather limited due to his duties as an army officer. He toured West Indies in 1953 and Pakistan in 1955 and met with modest success. In the fourth Test at Georgetown, Gadkari going in at No 9 hit a defiant 50 not out to push India, 64 for 5 at one stage, to a total of 262. He however bagged a pair in the next Test. He also played two `Tests' against the SJOC team in 1953-54. Gadkari fared much better in the Ranji Trophy and in a first-class career that stretched from the late forties to the mid sixties, he scored 3024 runs (40.32) with seven centuries. In the Ranji Trophy alone he averaged almost 50.
