Mumbai: Former cricketer from Maharashtra Sadashiv Patil passed away on Tuesday. He was 86.
Patil represented India in one Test and played 36 first-class matches over 11 seasons.
Patil, a medium-pacer, had made an instant impact on his first-class debut for Maharashtra in the 1952-53 season.
He earned the prized India Test cap (No. 79) when he made his debut at the Brabourne Stadium against the visiting New Zealand team in 1955 under the captaincy of Polly Umrigar.
Though he never played for India again, Patil continued to play for Maharashtra and also played in the Lancashire League, where he featured in 52 matches, taking 111 wickets in two seasons (1959 and 1961).
The BCCI has mourned the death of Sadashiv Patil.
