Profile

One of the most courageous opening batsmen in Indian cricket, Chetan Chauhan will be chiefly remembered as Sunil Gavaskar's partner in numerous Tests in the 70s and early 80s. The pair is the most successful Indian opening pair with ten century partnerships. Chauhan had technical limitations and his strokeplay was not exactly fluent. But no one could question his courage, his defence and his ability to get behind the line of the ball. He was always a difficult batsman to dislodge and his patience and dogged qualities stood India in very good stead in 40 Tests in the period 1969 to 1981. He made his debut as a 22-year-old against New Zealand at Mumbai and also played against Australia the same season. He was recalled for two Tests against England in 1972-73 but his most prolific period began when he was chosen for the tour of Australia in 1977-78.
