TEAMS

A capable opening bat and safe wicketkeeper, Madhav Mantri could not quite establish himself in the Indian team in the fifties because of the presence of better candidates in both fields. He toured England in 1952 and Pakistan in 1954-55. In England he scored 550 runs (22.91) on the tour and had 39 dismissals. In his first Test, he scored 39 putting on 75 runs for the first wicket with Pankaj Roy. His best match as wicketkeeper was when he caught three and stumped in the England first first innings at Lord's in 1952.

But if his record for India was modest, Mantri was consistency personified in the Ranji Trophy. He scored 2787 runs (50.67) in the national competition during a first class career that stretched over 25 years. His highest score was 200 for Bombay against Maharashtra in 1948-49, the third of three centuries in successive matches. In first class cricket he had 193 dismissals, 137 of them caught. He is the uncle of Sunil Gavaskar.
