Madhav Gothoskar, a veteran referee, was honored by the Cricketers’ Foundation for his contribution to Indian cricket. The foundation offered him a scarf, quote and a check of Rs. 75,000.
In addition to serving in 14 Test matches from 1973 to 1983, Gothoskar (92) was one of the most respected referees in Indian domestic cricket during his period from 1967 to 1983. He equaled in the record the 29th Test century of Sunil Gavaskar vs. West Indies in New Delhi.

Amit Gadkari, secretary of the foundation, visited Gothoskar in his home on the outskirts of Pune in a small gathering. The non-farmer enchanted the audience by telling Law 24 of the game eloquently.
