We’ve come up with Chandu Borde as the answer?
72 years young and long may he live… (Take care, sir. The game’s changed a fair deal and they say that the schedules are a bit tight these days. Apparently / Ostensibly that was a reason that the 46 year old extremely fit Mr Ford did not want the job either. Time away from family and all that.)
Now I’m curious about the team selection to be announced later this evening. Borde played 55 Tests for India between 1958 and 1969 and captained them in one Test, the opening game of the 1967-68 series against Australia at Adelaide. I’m wondering how many of those born during his playing years are considered too old to make the cut…(and no, not that it makes that much of a difference … or does it?)
