    Of course its Vinoo Mankad !! I am not sure about the peculiarity WRT the name. But his real name was Mulvantrai Himmatlal Mankad, Vinoo being his schoolboy nick name IIRC.

    SJS is that the peculiarity ?

    i dont think people should be banned if they come up with an answer, and a decent reason why.... i mean, both my guesses fitted the bill.... in a way, tis slightly ambigious, and for that reason, if the answer supplied fits the question, it shld not be reason for banning.

    if it was a wild stab, yes, if not, no

    Q6: Did he ever open the innings for India?....YES

    The rest was naming history: The Phadke household got a son, Vijay Merchant did score a double century, and Kamalatai’s son did get named Vijay. ….NO( Answering your post in totality)

    i'm confused you said 'yes' that he made his test debut in 1946 at lords(vinoo mankad) and you said 'yes' to him also averaging 71.64 in first class cricket(vijay merchant), since merchant made his test debut in 1933/34 and mankad averaged about half that in first class cricket i don't know what to think.....

    Was it because Vijay Merchant's real name is Vijay Thackersey
