Best remembered for a remarkable performance in the 2nd Test against Richie Benaud's Australians at Kanpur in 1958-59, where offspinner Jasubhai Patel took 14 wickets in the match as India won the Test. His 9 for 69 was India's best Test bowling figures till it was overtaken by Anil Kumble nearly 40 years later. That was Jasu's last series; his success was not replicated in the other six matches he played.
