Profile

He burst upon the scene as a talented teenager when he scored a breezy 110 for Bombay against the Rest of India in the Irani Trophy match at Nagpur in 1975, in the process taking a heavy toll of Bedi and Prasanna, then at their peak. On his immense potential, he was straightaway inducted into the Indian team but success was rather slow in coming. It was not until the tour of Australia in 1977-78 that Dilip Vengsarkar established himself in the side and for the next 15 years he was one of the batting bulwarks. Tall and slimly built, Vengsarkar was basically an elegant strokeplayer but on his day - which was often - he could be a tormentor of even the strongest attacks. He was India's No 3 for many years and from that pivotal position guided the fortunes of the country's batting for more than a decade.
