BCCI condoles the death of Rakesh Shukla

 

The BCCI condoles the death of former all-rounder Rakesh Shukla who passed away on Saturday morning in Delhi following prolonged illness. He was 71.

 

Mr. Shukla made his Test debut against Sri Lanka in 1982 – it was the only Test he played for India. He did not have the best of Test debuts finishing with just two wickets in the game. He did not receive a national call up thereafter.

 

In domestic cricket though, he remained a name to be reckoned with playing for Delhi, Bihar and Bengal. He played 121 first-class matches, claiming 295 wickets and amassing 3798 runs that included six centuries and seventeen half centuries.
