D'Souza, Antao

Antao D’Souza was born in Goa and played six Test matches for Pakistan. He was a medium pace bowler and handy lower order batsman.

He scored 76 runs in those six Tests, and is only the second cricketer in history after India’s’ Sadashiv Shinde, whose batting average (38.00) was more than their highest Test score - 23 not out against England in the 1st Test at Birmingham in 1962.

D’Souza took 17 wickets in the six Tests, and had 190 wickets in 61 First-Class matches.

The highlight of D’Souza’s six-Test career was his tour of England in 1962. he averaged a surprising 53 and remained not out on five out of the six innings.

D’Souza, whose father moved to Pakistan after the partition with India, migrated to Canada in 1999.
