Profile

Hiralal Gaekwad was a left armer who could bowl either slow or medium pace. He was a short-term replacement for Vinoo Mankad in the Test against Pakistan at Lucknow. The batsmen took a long time in getting their runs and Gaekwad was given as many as 37 overs. He conceded only 47 runs but finished wicketless. Earlier he had toured England in 1952 without playing in any of the Tests. A useful tail end batsman, he was one of the mainstays of the great Holkar team of the forties and fifties and at the end of a first-class career that stretched for more than two decades, he had picked up 374 wickets (23.60) and scored 2484 runs (19.40).
