Biography of T. E. SrinivasanGeneral Knowledge »
Tirumalai Echambadi Srinivasan (October 26, 1950 – December 6, 2010) was a former Indian cricketer who played in one Test and 2 One Day Internationals (ODIs) from 1980 to 1981.
Srinivasan was born in Chennai. He was first noticed when he hit 112 for South Zone against North Zone in the Duleep Trophy in the 1977–78 season.
A string of consistent performances, culminating in an innings of 129 in the 1980–81 Deodhar Trophy final and an unbeaten ton against Delhi in the Irani Trophy, earned him a place in the India squad for that season’s tour of Australia and New Zealand.
T. E. Srinivasan could, however, not make an impact in his two ODIs and scored 48 runs in his only Test, in Auckland.
Srinivasan died on December 6, 2010 after a long struggle against brain cancer.
The 60-year-old had had two operations and was due to have a third when he died.
