Profile

In the early 70s, Gopal Bose was one of the prime contenders for the post of Sunil Gavaskar's opening partner. The be-spectacled Bengal batsman was known for his intense concentration and his ability to play a long innings. A marathon knock of 170 for Rest of India in the Irani Trophy match against Bombay in 1973-74 brought him closer to national selection. Picked for the tour of Ceylon later that season, Bose did commendably. In the first `Test' he got a hundred and shared a 194-run opening partnership with Gavaskar. Not unexpectedly, he was selected for the tour of England in 1974. He started with a half century in the opening game but then found runs hard to come by and scored only 326 runs (20.37) in first class matches. He could not find a place in the Test side but played in the second one day international at the Oval where he scored 13 and bowled a full quota of 11 overs with his off breaks and picked up the wicket of David Lloyd.
