Chandu Borde Complete Bio & Career

Chandu Borde made his acting debut in the year 1958 against the touring West Indies team. He was looked upon as one of the most promising young talents in the country and by the decade of the 1960s, he established himself as one of the most prolific all-rounders in Indian set up. He could play every shot in the book with ease and considered Vijay Hazare as his batting idol. He was not just a part-time leg-spinner but also won India few matches with his skilled wrist spin. Though a shoulder injury in 1964 meant that he can’t bowl anymore and for the remainder of his career, he was on the side just as a batsman. He was also among the best close in and outfield fielder.
He was instrumental in India winning its ties against England in the 1961-62 home seasons. He played the fast bowlers with ease and scored consistently against the likes of great fast bowlers like Griffith, hall, and McKenzie. After back to back failures in the tour of England and Australia and his reflexes also slowing down, he was dropped from the side to pave way for a youngster and thus played his last match for India in 1969 against Australia at the very same venue where he made his debut, Mumbai.
Post-retirement, he served as the manager of the Indian team on their overseas tours and also served as the chairman of selectors.
