Hemant Kanitkar came into national reckoning by a series of splendid performances around the domestic circuit. But his international record did not come anywhere near his feats at the national level. A stocky and gritty right-hand batsman and a sound wicketkeeper, Kanitkar scored a career-best 65 in his first Test innings against West Indies at Bangalore, but successive scores of 18, 8 and 20 meant that he could not consolidate his place in the side and he was discarded for good. He remained a tower of strength for Maharashtra in the Ranji Trophy in which he scored 3632 runs (43.75), with a highest score of 250 against Rajasthan in 1970-71. In a first-class career that lasted from 1963 to 1978, Kanitkar scored 5007 runs (42.79) with 13 centuries and 87 dismissals, 68 of them caught. He is the father of Hrishikesh Kanitkar.
