Profile

As Syed Kirmani was nearing the end of his career in the mid-1980s, the search for a suitable successor started in real earnest. And among a bunch of likely contenders, Sadanand Viswanath surged ahead to take the wicketkeeper's spot in the World Championship of Cricket in 1985 and on the tour to Sri Lanka later that year. Unfortunately, apart for a handful few more ODIs, that remained the extent of his international career. Which was a pity for on his day, he could be brilliant.
