Nimbalkar is no more

Mumbai: Former Ranji Trophy player Bhausaheb Nimbalkar, who had a first-class best score of 443 not out, passed way on Tuesday morning. He was 93.

Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan visited Kolhapur and offered his condolences to Bhausaheb’s family.

The right-handed batsman holds the record of scoring unbeaten 443 runs for Maharashtra, against Kathiawar, in a Ranji match, in Pune, in 1948-49.

He was often described as “a man who nearly beat Bradman” for his innings, as at that time his knock was second only to the Australian’s 452 not out as the record first-class innings. That particular innings still remains the fourth-highest individual score in first-class cricket.
