Wisden obituary
Commandur Rajagopalachari Rangachari, who died on October 9, 1993, aged 77, was a fast bowler who played four Tests for India against Australia and West Indies. He took four for 141 in unpromising circumstances (at one stage Australia were 503 for three) on his debut at Adelaide in 1947-48. But his real moment of glory came at Delhi ten months later, in India's first home Test for 15 years: with the game hardly started, he dismissed Rae, Stollmeyer and Headley to leave the score 27 for three. However, West Indies went on to make 631, though Rangachari's final figures were still 5 for 107. He took no other Test wickets and the nine eventually cost him 54.77 each. After the Bombay Test that followed he was dropped, but played on for Madras for another five seasons. He was a police officer.
