LOT 30 - EAS Prasanna National Blazer, West Indies tour of India 74/75
Pras as he was fondly knows Erapali Prasanna was like a chess player in the guise of an offspinner, his victims had often been out-thought before the ball had been delivered. A bowler who had complete mastery over flight, he was difficult to play even on good pitches. Many a bat was lured to his doom, lunging out to hit the half-volley, only to find it pitching a foot shorter than expected. He became captain Pataudi's favourite weapon as a aprt of the famous spin quartet. After a humuliating defeat to England, India were down 2-1 in the Test series against a formidible West Indies side at home. In the 4th Test Prasanna took 9 in the test match and helped India level the series 2-2. This jacket is particularly important for that feat.
