About Chandu Borde (from Wikipedia Page)
Chandrakant Gulabrao “Chandu” Borde, is a former cricketer who was a member of the Indian team between 1958 and 1970.
Following his retirement, Borde became a cricket administrator, serving as the Chairman of national selectors.
He has received various awards from the Government of India for his contributions to cricket, on and off the field.
Borde made his debut in the First Test during the West Indies tour of India. Over the first two Tests, his performance was ordinary and was dropped for the Third Test in favour of debutant Ramnath Kenny. After a poor performance from Kenny, Borde was recalled and made his maiden Test half-century.
In the Fifth and final Test of the series, Borde made his international breakthrough with a maiden century, 109 and then 96 in the second innings of a drawn match.
In the next series, India toured England, and Borde fractured the little finger on the left hand in the First Test, and missed the second Test. Over the next 11 matches, Borde scored only two half-centuries and 14 wickets as Australia and Pakistan toured India.
In the Fourth Test against Pakistan in Madras, he made 177*, his second century and highest Test score, combining in a 177-run stand with fellow centurion Polly Umrigar.
