Late Mr.Ashok Mankad
Ashok Mankad first came into prominence by scoring a half-century as a teenager against the MCC for West Zone in 1963-64. A series of big scores over the years saw him get his break against New Zealand in 1969-70. He went in late in the order and then because of circumstances was pushed to the opening slot. He was an instant success in his new role against Australia, negotiating McKenzie and Connolly with ease and running up successive scores of 74, 8, 64, 68 and 97.

He had a fair amount of success on the tour of West Indies in 1971, striking up a good combination with 'new boy' Sunil Gavaskar with whom he shared partnerships of 68, 74, 72 and 123 (unbroken).

He did well enough but was dropped and was again considered for only one Test against England later that season. He did reasonably well in the series in Australia in 1977-78 (he headed the tour averages with 508 runs at 50.80). In first class cricket however Mankad has been in a class of his own. In the Ranji Trophy alone, he has scored 6619 runs (76.08) with 22 hundreds with a highest score of 265 against Delhi in the 1980-81 final.

Late Mr.Polly Umrigar. Ex Indian Cricket Captain
One of the all time greats of Indian cricket, he was a heroic figure from the late forties to the early sixties, almost always shining in a losing cause. Despite this, when he retired, he held the most important records - most Tests, most runs, most hundreds. In fact his records stood from 1962 to 1978 when Sunil.Gavaskar broke them.

A burly six footer, Umrigar was a commanding figure at the crease - whether batting, bowling, directing operations as captain or standing in his usual position at first slip. Umrigar excelled in full-blooded drives but he could also hook and pull powerfully. As a bowler, he was an accurate offspinner and could even open the bowling, sending down outswingers. He was a brilliant versatile fielder.

Either as batsman, bowler or captain, he helped shape the few Indian triumphs of his time. For 30 years he held the record of getting the highest score by an Indian on tour - 252 not out against Cambridge University in 1959. As a bowler, his finest hour was when he took 4 for 27 while helping India to defeat mighty Australia at Kanpur in 1959. A shrewd captain, he led India in eight Tests, winning two and losing two before he resigned the captaincy at Madras against West Indies in 1959 following a misunderstanding with the selectors.

He is only one of two Indian cricketers (Vinoo Mankad being the other) to score a century and take five wickets in an innings - a feat he achieved against West Indies at Port of Spain in 1962. Umrigar was the first Indian to hit a Test double century. After retirement, he continued to serve Indian cricket as chairman of the selection committee, tour manager and BCCI executive secretary.

Piloo Reporter, Ex. Intl. Umpire
Officiated in 14 Tests and 23 one-day internationals. One half of the first pair of 'neutral' umpires in Test cricket since 1912, when he and V. K. Ramaswamy did duty in the Test series between Pakistan and the West Indies in 1986-87. India's sole umpiring representative in the 1992 World Cup.

Dr. Aijaz Ashai (Pysiotherapist of the Mumbai Indians- Indian Premier League(IPL) team) Dr. Aijaz Ashai is a physiotherapist, physical trainer, instructor, writer and sportsman, all rolled into one. An alumnus of the National Institute for the Orthopedically Handicapped, Kolkata, he has been associated with spurts for the last seven years.

An expert on injury prevention in sports, treatment of 'sporting' injuries, cardiac rehabilitation, sports physical fitness training and physiotherapy treatment, he is the Managing Director and Owner of the Health Asset Fitness and Sports Medicine Rehabilitation Centre in Mumbai. Cricketers, footballers, badminton and tennis players and athletes train at his center.

Dr. Aijaz has had stints as physio and physical trainer of the Mumbai and Delhi Ranji Trophy teams, the Mumbai Police cricket team and also the Mahindra United Football team. He has been associated with the Maharashtra State Lawn Tennis Association as well. He has treated and implemented physical fitness programs for sports personalities like cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar and tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi. Current India players Virender Sehwag, Aakash Chopra, Ashish Nehra and Amit Bhandari are some of the prominent cricketers who have benefited from his advice.

He has conducted several fitness and training camps, including the Mumbai Cricket Association's Summer Camp in 1999 and the Delhi Cricket Association's camps for the under-25s and under-17s in 2002-03.. He has also worked with the Bishen Singh Bedi Coaching Trust in Ludhiana and Chandigarh in 2001 and 2002, and the Himachal Cricket Association in for 2003 - 2004.

His writings have appeared in a host of publications like the limes of India, Asian Age, the Afternoon Despatch and Courier, Navbharat Times and Gujarat Samachar. TV channels like ESPN-STAR, Doordarshan and SET Max have interviewed him as an expert on fitness- related matters. He also conducts a Personal Fitness Instructor course twice a year, at his Health Asset Fitness Academy.

At cricketforindia.com, the dynamic Dr. Aijaz is focusing on the areas of fitness, injury prevention and treatment, aspects which in today's times are as critical for an aspiring cricketer as the ability to bat, bowl and field.

S. P. Bhatia
An opening batsman and wicketkeeper, he represented Mumbai in the under - 19 Cooch Behar trophy in the 1940s. In later years, he opened the batting with the illustrious Vijay Merchant in club cricket and coached many an accomplished cricketer, like Ashok Mankad, Budhi Kunderan and Sharad Hazare.

Devendra Prabhudesai
Like every Mumbai boy, Devendra Prahhudesai (Born: 1976) wanted to be a cricketer. In his childhood, he exasperated one and all with his passion for the game, which most of the time bordered on the insane. He first attended a coaching camp at the age of 12 and realized fairly quickly that while the spirit was willing, the talent was weak. He compensated by winning an inter - collegiate cricket quiz competition at 17.

He completed his MA (Social Work) from TISS, Mumbai in 1988.

Like a true Indian, his 'second innings' has been a lot better than the first. It began in August 2000, when fate led him to Sunil Gavaskar's Professional Management Group.

His objective mirrors that of the website - To make cricketforindia.com the best sports coaching site in the world.
