BCCI condoles sad demise of Gopal Bose

The BCCI condoles the sad demise of Gopal Bose. The former Bengal opener and captain breathed his last in Birmingham on Sunday.

Bose represented Bengal for a decade and amassed 3757 runs in 78 first-class games with eight centuries and 17 fifties. He also took 72 wickets with his off spin. Known for playing long knocks, he was named in India’s Tour to Sri Lanka and shared a 194-run opening stand with Sunil Gavaskar in a first-class game in which he scored 104.

He was included in India's squad for the tour of England in 1974 and played in one ODI – his only appearance for India. He scored 13 runs in the match and took the wicket of David Lloyd at The Oval.

Bose later served as a Bengal selector and also coached their junior team. He was also the manager of the Virat Kohli-led India U19 side that won the World Cup in 2008.
