Ajit Wadekar is no more.Former Indian Test cricket Captain and chief selector Ajit Wadekar passed away yesterday in Mumbai. He is 77 years old.
He is always remembered by Indians for the series wins against West Indies and England in 1971. He was the Captian for One-day series also but only for 2 matches and he made 73 runs in those two matches.
He served as Manager to Indian Cricket team during the 90s when Azharuddin was the captain. Later on, he served the BCCI as the Chairman of the selection committee. He served the game throughout his active life in one way or other. The present-day cricketers should take him as a role model for the sincerity towards the game. Let his soul rest in peace.
