Chandrakant Trimbak Patankar About this soundpronunciation  (born 24 November 1930) is a former Indian cricketer who played in one Test in 1955.[1]

Life and career[]

Born in Pen in the Raigad district of Maharashtra, Patankar attended Bombay University, gaining an MSc.[2] He played first-class cricket for Bombay from 1950 to 1966, then had a season for Maharashtra in 1966-67.[1]

A wicketkeeper and lower-order right-handed batsman, Patankar replaced his Bombay wicketkeeping colleague Naren Tamhane, who was injured, for the fourth game of the five-match Test series against New Zealand, but lost his place when Tamhane replaced him for the final game of the series.[2][3] He played in Bombay's Ranji Trophy-winning teams in 1960-61 and 1965-66, but never played an uninterrupted season, Tamhane being the senior Bombay wicket-keeper for most of that period.[4] In the Ranji Trophy semi-final against Madras in 1953-54 he made five stumpings in Bombay's 379-run victory, then lost his place to Tamhane for the final.[5] He usually batted in the tail without making many runs, but when he opened the batting for the Maharana of Mewar's XI against the Associated Cement Company in the 1964-65 Moin-ud-Dowlah Gold Cup Tournament he not only scored his only first-class fifty but went on to score 100.[6]

Patankar worked for the Indian companies BEST, Killick Indus and Laxmi Vishnu.[2]
