Ashok Mankad Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Ashok Mankad First-Class numbers 12,980 runs at 51 would have been enough to mark him out as a domestic stalwart. Batting, however, was not his primary suit: contemporaries still consider Mankad the greatest captain India has produced, often referring to him as the Mike Brearley of India. He would place Ghulam Parkar — the pittu champion with amazingly accurate flat throws — in deceptively faraway zones on the field. He unearthed Sandeep Patil as a containing bowler. He was a constant support to Padmakar Shivalkar, giving him complete support with field placements, making him emerge as a champion. His shuffling of batting-orders to counter spinners was legendary. Like Brearley, Mankad, too, was an excellent reader of men, grooming youngsters like Parthasarathy Sharma, Raju Kulkarni, and Chandrakant Pandit. His terrific sense of humour (as well as his infinite trove of anecdotes and mimicry skills) helped his cause, for it is not often that the captain is the most popular man in the dressing-room.

Ashok Mankad did start off well. In his second series, against Australia at home, he went past 60 four times in five innings. When India won in Queen’s Park Oval, Mankad, opening batting, contributed with 44 and 29, adding 68 and 74 with debutant Sunil Gavaskar. He followed this with 40 and 53* in the next Test at Bourda. His first 9 Tests fetched him 588 runs at 37. Unfortunately, the other 13 got him 403 at 18. He was there at The Oval in 1971, but did little of note; and though he earned a recall in 1976-77, he lasted for just over another year at the highest level. At domestic level, however, it was another story. He scored a mammoth 265 in the Ranji Trophy final of 1980-81. Before that, in 1975-76, came the famous 69 and 136 not out against an outstanding Hyderabad side.
His only ODI, at The Oval in 1974, was a queer one. India went in with three seamers (all all-rounders; Madan Lal batted at No. 11) and picked Gopal Bose as the only spinner. Mankad, for some reason playing as a bowling all-rounder (he would take 72 wickets in his 218-match First-Class career), top-scored with 44, and later got Mike Denness. Nicknamed Kaka (he was a huge fan of actor Rajesh Khanna, of the same nickname), he did something near-unthinkable: he managed to emerge out of the giant shadows of Vinoo Mankad. His brothers Rahul and Atul also played First-Class cricket.
