Profile

A capable opening bat and safe wicketkeeper, Madhav Mantri could not quite establish himself in the Indian team in the fifties because of the presence of better candidates in both fields. He toured England in 1952 and Pakistan in 1954-55. In England he scored 550 runs (22.91) on the tour and had 39 dismissals. In his first Test, he scored 39 putting on 75 runs for the first wicket with Pankaj Roy. His best match as wicketkeeper was when he caught three and stumped in the England first first innings at Lord's in 1952.
