TEAMS

A sound right-handed bat, with quick footwork and stylish strokeplay, and an off-break bowler of almost medium pace, Ramnath Kenny played in five Tests for India: at Calcutta against West Indies in 1958-59 and four times against Benaud's Australian side in 1959-60, scoring in all 245 runs with an average of 27.22 and a highest innings of 62. Playing for Bombay from 1950-51 to 1960-61, and then for Bengal until 1963-64, he scored in all first-class cricket 3,079 runs with an average of 50.47 and took fifteen wickets at 31.20. Among his eleven hundreds, three in 1956-57 came in successive innings with the third, 218 against Madras, remaining his highest score. A qualified coach, he helped in the development of the young Sunil Gavaskar, and it was while playing and coaching professionally in the north of England that he played for Cumberland.
