Profile

A cricketer whose Test career did not compare to his impressive domestic record, Parthasarthi Sharma was a well-built, right-hand batsman. Selected in the national team following a series of impressive performances for Rajasthan and Central Zone in the Ranji and Duleep Trophies, Sharma had a promising beginning, scoring 54 and 49 on debut against West Indies in Delhi in 1974-75. A less successful outing in the next Test, in which he scored 6 and 9, had him axed. On tours to New Zealand and West Indies, Sharma opened with Sunil Gavaskar in the first Test in Bridgetown, but scored only 6 and 1. At home against England in 1976-77, he had scores of 4, 29, 9 and 20 in two Tests and was discarded for good after defeats in both games.
