Sudhir Naik Height, Age, Net Worth, House, Affairs, Biography

Sudhir Naik will unfortunately be remembered for the alleged shoplifting at Marks & Spencer during India’s horror tour of England in 1974. The tour was a disaster, complete with a whitewash, an abysmal low of 42 all out at Lord’s, and an altercation with the Indian High Commission. To his credit, Naik bounced back on Test debut a few days later, at Edgbaston. He scored 4 in the first innings as India were bowled out for 165, but after England declared on 459 for 2, Naik top-scored with a resolute 77. He also played India’s first 2 ODIs (both on that tour) without much success.

An injury to Sunil Gavaskar  that winter gave Naik another chance against West Indies. He got a crucial 48 against West Indies, but after innings of 6, 0, 6, he was discarded for good. He finished with 141 runs at 24 from 3 Tests.
