Profile

Wisden Overview
A teenage prodigy, Ramesh Saxena was a middle-order batsman who combined style with technical expertise. A stalwart for Delhi for many years, Saxena made 113 not out on his debut in the Ranji Trophy against Southern Punjab in 1960-61 when he was only 16. Saxena toured England with the Indian team in 1967 as a reserve middle-order batsman and scored 238 runs (23.80) in first-class games. He played his only Test, against England at Headingley, scoring 9 in the first-innings when he opened and then 16 dropping down no No. 7 in the second. He also toured Australia and New Zealand in 1967-68 with modest success. He was also an occasional legbreak bowler and a sound cover fielder. He later served as secretary of the Bihar Jharkhand Cricket Association, before his death at the age of 66.
