A stylish batsman whowas a joy to watch in full flow, Srinivasan was a batting stalwart for Tamil Nadu for a decade. A late bloomer, he came into the limelight with a brilliant 112 for South Zone against North Zone in the Duleep Trophy at Bangalore in 1977-78. In 1980-81, he scored a superb 129 for South Zone against West Zone in the Deodhar Trophy final at Madras and clinched his place in the team to tour Australia and New Zealand with an unbeaten century in the Irani Trophy game at New Delhi. On his only tour, Srinivasan did well in the first class games, but could not make it to the playing eleven either as opener or middle order bat. He belatedly got a chance to play his only Test against New Zealand at Auckland when he scored 29 and 19. An occasional leg spinner, Srinivasan represented Woodhouse in the Yorkshire League for some years and also played Grade cricket in New South Wales. He died in December 2010 after a long and painful battle with brain cancer.
