Amol Muzumdar is a cricketer who had a notable career in domestic cricket in India. Despite his impressive performance in 171 first-class matches, where he scored 11,167 runs at an average of 48.13, he never had the opportunity to represent the national team.
Muzumdar’s consistent performances in domestic cricket, including List A matches, were unfortunately overlooked for international selection. He achieved remarkable statistics, including 30 centuries, with an average higher than that of Rohit Sharma, who is a renowned international player with an average of 45.
Throughout his career, Muzumdar played for various teams in the Ranji Trophy, such as Mumbai, Andhra Pradesh, and Assam. His impressive run total of 9,205 in the Ranji Trophy ranks him as the second-highest scorer after Wasim Zafar. Additionally, he scored 3,286 runs in List A matches.
Currently, at the age of 48, Muzumdar serves as the head coach of the Mumbai team. Despite his accomplishments, he faced disappointment during a historic match between Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli, where he was all prepared to bat but never got the chance. While Tendulkar and Kambli went on to represent India, Muzumdar’s national debut remained elusive. He retired in 2017 after an impressive career spanning nearly three decades.
Muzumdar played first-class cricket from 1993-94 to 2008-09 for Mumbai and from 2009-10 to 2013-14 for Assam and Andhra.
