Description:
Lt. Col. Chandrasekhar Vaman Gadkari (born February 3, 1928, Poona - died January 11, 1998, Pune) was an Indian Test cricketer.

Gadkari was an attacking batsman, medium pace bowler and a great fielder. He made a fine impression as a fielder in the 1952/53 tour to West Indies in an Indian side that was noted for its fielding. He made 50* in the Georgetown Test which remained his highest score. His other tour was to Pakistan in 1954/55.

He was commissioned into the army in 1949 and rose to become a Lieutenant Colonel. He represented Services in the Ranji Trophy thereafter. But the army service also restricted his appearances. He died in 1998 after a brief illness.
