This happened this day

18 October:

In 1983 Vijay Manjrekar died in Madras, aged 52. He played 55 Tests for India , scoring 3,208 runs at an average of 39.12. He is considered one of the best middle-order batsmen to ever play for India. As a 20-year-old, he scored a century in England in 1952, in a series in which debutante Fred Trueman overwhelmed India. He scored a century in his last Test innings against New Zealand but was dropped after his Test, apparently for poor fielding never playing for India again. His son Sanjay also played successfully for India and is now a popular TV commentator and columnist.
