Position Wicket Keeper

Ebrahim Suleman Maka is a former Indian wicket-keeper who hails from Daman in India. He has played for Gujarat and Mumbai in domestic cricket and also represented his country on international match fixtures.

Maka played a total of 34 first-class matched for Indian domestic teams scoring a total of 304 runs off them. He took 58 catches and made 27 stumpings as a wicket-keeper during that time. His top batting score was also good enough at 66 runs – not out.

During the time that Maka was a wicket-keeper, India had many skilled wicket-keepers of the same class and style. The Indian selectors had the option to choose from Vijay Rajindernath, Nana Joshi and Probir Sen besides Maka himself. He was selected for two test matches, one against Pakistan which was his debut one and another against West Indies which became his final one in 1953.

In his final match, he suffered an injury to his hand and unfortunately fractured two bones on his left hand. This was the end to not only his participation in the West Indies tour but also for any other test match for India.
