BCCI condoles death of Rakesh Shukla


Press Trust of India New Delhi
The BCCI Sunday condoled the death of former India all-rounder Rakesh Shukla who passed away on Saturday here following prolonged illness.
He was 71.
Shukla played one Test for India -- against Sri Lanka in 1982. He did not have the best of Test debuts, finishing with just two wickets in the game, the BCCI said in a release.
"In domestic cricket, though, Shukla remained a name to be reckoned with, playing for Delhi, Bihar and Bengal. He played 121 first-class matches, claiming 295 wickets and amassed 3798 runs that included six centuries and seventeen half centuries," the BCCI said.
