Ramesh Chand Saxena About this sound pronunciation  (20 September 1944, Delhi – 16 August 2011, Jamshedpur)[1] was an Indian cricketer who played in one Test in 1967.

First-class career[edit]

Saxena made his first-class debut for Delhi vs Southern Punjab as a 16-year-old in the 1960/61 season, hitting an unbeaten 113 in his first first-class innings.

Test career[edit]

Saxena made his Test debut for India in a match against England in Leeds in 1967. England batted first and declared on 550/4, with Geoffrey Boycott scoring an unbeaten 246 and Saxena bowling 2 wicketless overs. He then opened with Farokh Engineer in India's innings, but was out for just 9 as India were bowled out for 164 and forced to follow on. India put in an improved performance in the second innings, posting 510, but Saxena, batting at 7, only contributed 16. England then knocked off the required runs to seal a 6 wicket victory.
