BCCI condoles the passing away of Deepak Shodhan

The BCCI condoles the sad demise of former Test cricketer who passed away at his residence in Ahmedabad
Default

The BCCI condoles the sad demise of former Test cricketer Deepak Shodhan (87), who breathed his last on Monday morning at his residence in Ahmedabad. Born on 18 October 1928, Shodhan, who had been suffering from lung cancer, was India’s oldest living Test cricketer. He played for Gujarat and Baroda between 1946-47 to 1961-62.

An elegant left-hander and a medium-pacer, Shodhan struck a Test century on debut. Playing his first Test (12th-15th October 1952) at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata against Pakistan, Shodhan walked out to bat at No. 8 with India struggling at 179/6. He led India’s reply with tail-enders for company and struck a fine 110. His knock helped India take a 140-run lead, but the match ended in a draw with India winning the five-match Test series 2-1. 


The BCCI deeply appreciates the outstanding service of Mr Deepak Shodhan to Indian cricket over a long time.
