The Nawab of Pataudi

5 10 2011

I was saddened to learn of the passing on of the The Nawab of Pataudi. An astonishing sporting hero and long time captain of the Indian cricket team. The Nawab faced the faster bowlers in the world (back in the 60s it was the West Indies) BUT he only had one good eye! It seems he saw two balls, but would choose to hit “the inside one.”
