|Only Test||India v New Zealand at Mumbai (BS), Dec 2-7, 1955 scorecard|
One of the many young cricketers given the big break by Lala Amarnath when he was chairman of the selection committee, Patil's Test appearances were restricted to the minimum. He did not do badly against New Zealand at Bombay. He scored 14 not out, took the wicket of John Reid in both innings and had match figures of 2 for 51 from 23 overs and was even a member of a winning team. Inexplicably however
he never got another chance to play for the country. A useful tailend batsman, Patil played first-class cricket from 1952 to 1964, finishing with 859 runs (26.84) and 83 wickets (30.60).
