The Indian head coach Ravi Shastri shared a throwback picture with domestic giant Amol Muzumdar. Shastri wrote in the caption that he believes it was team India’s loss not to have Amol Muzumdar in the whites. Muzumdar is one of the biggest Ranji Trophy batsmen but he could not break into the side. Interestingly the 1993-94 season was Shastri’s swansong season and it was when Muzumdar played his maiden season for Mumbai.
Meanwhile, the right-hander scored 11167 runs in 172 First-class matches at an impressive average of 48.13 Muzumdar scored 30 centuries and 60 fifties in his illustrious career but surprisingly he was not picked in the Indian team.
Amol Muzumdar was a domestic giant.
On the other hand, he scored 3286 runs in 109 List A matches at an average of 38.20. The Mumbai right-hander scored three centuries and 26 fifties in his List A career.
Ravi Shastri took to Twitter to share the throwback picture with Amol Muzumdar. The tweet caption read as, “With one of #RanjiTrophy giants – @amolmuzumdar11. My last season was his first. I still believe it was #TeamIndia’s loss to not see him in whites”.
