Profile

Wisden obituary
Hardikar, Manohar Shankar, who died on February 4, 1995, in Bombay, aged 58, was an allrounder who played two Tests for India against West Indies in 1958-59. On his debut in Bombay, he took his only Test wicket ( Kanhai, lbw) with his third ball and then helped save the game with 32 not out, having been out first ball in the first innings. In the next match at Kanpur, he was hit on the head, which badly affected his confidence. However, he remained a highly effective all-rounder for Bombay. He made his debut for them aged only 18 in 1955-56 and his slow to medium-paced bowling had its greatest day when he took eight for 39 against Bengal in the final of the Ranji Trophy that season. He played 14 seasons in all, captaining Bombay in the last two, and scored eight centuries, including 207 not out against Services in 1964-65.
