Cricket News: Whenever one reads the history of the Indian cricket team some names are always on top. Among them are CK Naidu, Lala Amarnath, Tiger Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Apart from these, there are some players who have left their mark on the team. In 1970, India won the first Test series against England and the West Indies. In the same decade, India won overseas for the first time. Gavaskar and Kapil are the two biggest gems of Indian cricket this decade. There is another besides these two. He is Gundappa Vishwanath from Karnataka.
Today is the birthday of small scale big batsmen. Vishwanath was born on February 12, 1949 in Mysore, Karnataka. Vishi started his first class career in 1967 for Karnataka. It is learned that Vishwanath has not officially trained under any coach. Seeing only his elder brother Jagannath, he started playing cricket, followed whatever the seniors and seniors in the team said and did the rest with his talent. Vichy knocked out a double century in his first-class debut match. Vishwanath’s specialty is wrist magic. The square cut shots he hit with his wrist were very special. The audience was well entertained. This made him very recognizable. Square cut is what Viswanath remembers. Vishwanath, a fast bowler from the West Indies and Australia, is the best spinner in Pakistan and England, but he is not a wrist strike survivor. He started from his first Test.
Special affiliation with Australia, West Indies
Vishwanath made his Test debut in 1969 against Australia in Kanpur. However, he was dismissed for 0 in the first innings. His enthusiasm did not diminish, however. He scored a great century (137) in the second innings. The series started from here and continued till the next 91 Tests. Outstanding performances against Australia, West Indies. He scored 1538 runs (4 centuries, 9 fifties) in 31 innings against Australia, averaging 53.03. Vichy, on the other hand, scored 1455 runs (4 centuries, 7 half centuries) in 28 innings at an average of 53.88 in front of a formidable pace battery.
India won every time he scored a century
Vishwanath served the Indian team for 14 consecutive years. Witnessed many amazing successes during this time, as a writer. In Vishwanath’s 91 Test career, whenever he scores a century, the Indian team wins. Vichy scored a total of 13 centuries. India won or lost a match but never lost. In his career, Vichy scored 6080 runs at an average of 41. He also played 25 ODIs in which he scored only 439 runs.
