TEAMS

A tall and well built man, befitting a sub inspector of police, Ghulam Guard's Test appearances were restricted to two. A left arm medium pace bowler, he made a fairly impressive debut against West Indies at Bombay in 1958-59 at the age of 33. In the first innings he picked up the wicket of Gary Sobers and in the second added the wickets of both the openers Holt and Hunte. His only other appearance was also at Bombay, against Australia in 1959-60 when he finished wicketless. In a first class career that lasted from 1946 to 1963, Guard picked up 124 wickets (20.60).
