Wisden obituary
Pallemoni Krishnamurthy, died on January 28, 1999, aged 51. Pochiah Krishnamurthy was a tall wicket-keeper who enjoyed standing up even to fast bowlers, and played five Tests for India against West Indies in 1970-71 when Farokh Engineer was unavailable. He was also reserve keeper on the following summer's tour of England, and four years later in New Zealand and West Indies. Krishnamurthy played for Hyderabad throughout the 1970s, batting in every position and sharing hundred stands both as an opener and as a No. 11. His 218 victims in 108 first-class matches included 68 stumpings, a proportion that was by then already unthinkable anywhere outside India.
