Profile

When Lala Amarnath was chairman of the selection committee, he encouraged many youngsters by giving them their break. One of them was Sunderam, who played two Tests against New Zealand in 1955-56. A medium pacer who played for Mumbai and then for Rajasthan, Sunderam did well enough in his restricted appearances. Confronted by a featherbed Kotla pitch on his debut, he sent down 39 overs and finished with 1 for 99 as New Zealand amassed 450 for 2. In the next Test at Calcutta, he took the wickets of opening batsman JG Leggat and John Reid for 46 runs off 21 overs. But he never got another chance to represent the country. In a fairly long first-class career, which stretched throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Sunderam took 127 wickets .
