Articles about Mohinder Amarnath
Indian cricket has seen many batsmen with character. Those who failed, but dusted off failure and got back up. However, there was none like Mohinder Amarnath. A career that had impeccable heights, but also had lows that matched those highs is a testament to Amarnath’s character. Hailing from Punjab, it would have surprised everyone if Amarnath hadn’t become a cricketer. His father was the great Lala Amarnath and his brother Surinder Amarnath played for India in Tests. Jimmy, as he was known amongst his peers, made his Test debut against Australia in 1969. The next time he played for India was in 1975. Amarnath started his career as a medium pacer but as time passed, he became better and better as a batsman. Although he was back in the team in the latter part of the 70s, he still did not hit his stride until the 1982-1983 season. In the 11 Tests he played that season, he scored around 1,200 runs. His contributions were crucial in India becoming the world champion in 1983. Amarnath was a beast when it came to playing overseas as he scored 9 of his 11 Test centuries outside India.
