He is an excellent fielder I am fan of him: Normally he use to field at silly mid off or silly mid on: Solkar was renowned for his excellent close fielding, and his catches helped India to victory against England at The Oval in 1971, the team\'s first Test win in England.

His 53 catches in only 27 matches is the best ratio of any non keeper with 20 or more Tests. He is responsible for one of cricket\'s most celebrated quotes, directed at Geoffrey Boycott: \"I will out you bloody.\"

As raahul dravid is famous for catches., the same EKNATH SOLKR was
famous for good catches..and a very good all rounder player of cricket..
In 27 Tests, he caught 53 batsmen, to give him a ratio of 1.96 catches
per match !! Solkar was 28 when he played the last of his 27 Tests,
ending up with 1068 ... Eknath Solkar takes a catch off Derek Underwood
as Sunil Gavaskar watches !! He had an awe-inspiring record of 53 catches in only 27 matches. ...!!
