[MONTAGE] Happy Birthday, Colonel
Dilip Vengsarkar [born: April 6, 1956] is the former India captain who played 116 Tests and 129 ODIs. A graceful stroke-maker, the ‘Colonel’ was among India’s most prolific run-makers. At his retirement in 1992, his 6868 Test runs and 17 hundreds for India were second only to Sunil Gavaskar.
He reserved his best for England. Of those 17, five were against them, four on their soil, and an outstanding three at Lord’s alone. During a brief period in the mid 80s when he made eight tons in 16 Tests, he was the world’s best batsman. Vengsarkar captained India briefly before an exhibition cricket tour of the U.S. cost him the job in 1989. He has also served as the chairman of the selection committee. (TAG: CYCSPL)
