Profile

One of several wicketkeepers tried out in the early fifties, ES Maka was fairly impressive on his debut against Pakistan in the rain-affected fourth Test at Madras in 1952-53 when he took three victims, two caught and one stumped. Touring West Indies in 1953 as reserve wicketkeeper to `Nana' Joshi, Maka played in the third Test at Port of Spain but after he had scored two - incidentally his only runs in Test cricket - he had two bones in his left hand fractured while batting against fast bowler FM King. He took no further part in the tour and that was the end of his Test career as well. His first-class career however stretched for over two decades and he had a total of 85 dismissals, 59 of them caught.
