Profile

An offspinner who was both accurate and penetrative, Srinivas Venkatraghavan was a member of the famous spin quartet which teased and tormented batsmen the world over for well over a decade. He was a fighter to the core. Having to compete with EAS Prasanna for the offspinner's slot, Venkat was in an unenviable position. But he kept improving as a bowler, was a useful tailend batsman, an excellent close in fieldsman and a shrewd captain. The international career of Venkat, who remained very fit throughout his playing days, lasted from February 1965 to September 1983, one of the longest for an Indian player.
