DIWADKAR, SHARAD JAGANNATH, died of a heart attack while walking with the former Indian captain Polly Umrigar in Mumbai on March 1, 2005, aged 69. An economical off-spinner whose international hopes were stymied by the likes of Prasanna and Venkataraghavan, "Jimmy" (after Jim Laker) Diwadkar took 211 wickets in first-class cricket, with a best return of six for 19 for Bombay against Saurashtra in 1965-66. He also scored 177 against Rajasthan in 1963-64. Diwadkar captained Bombay, and later succeeded Umrigar as executive secretary of the Indian cricket board in 1997, until poor health forced him to step down in 2003.
