Thirumalai Ananthanpillai Sekar pronunciation (born 28 March 1956, in Madras) was a medium pace bowler who represented India in Test cricket and One Day Internationals.
Sekar was one of the fastest bowlers in India in the early eighties. His two Test matches were in the 1982-83 season when he was flown out to Pakistan to replace the injured Madan Lal. He did not take a wicket in either match. He played a One Day International in that series and three more against England two years later.
Sekar played for Tamil Nadu between 1976/77 and 1987/88 taking 74 wickets. His career best effort was 9 for 54 against Kerala in 1981/82. He played for Madhya Pradesh for two seasons before bowing out of the game.
Since then his major contribution to Indian cricket is a bowling coach at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai. He served as a national selector for a period of time.
