Gopal Bose was an opening batsman and off spin bowler. Gopal Bose played 78 first class matches with an average of 30.79. Gopal also took 72 wickets in first class cricket. 

Gopal Bose came into national reckoning, after scoring 170 in Irani Trophy for Rest of India against Bombay. During the first half of 70's, Sunil Gavaskar had no steady opening partner in test cricket but due to unknown reasons, Gopal Bose failed to become partner of Sunil Gavaskar. Gopal Bose played an unofficial test in Sri Lanka and scored a 100 opening with Sunil Gavaskar. He was picked for 1974 England tour after that but failed to replicate that form in tour matches. He did not get chance in test matches but played an ODI for India. He was later chosen for the home series against West Indies, but didn't make the first 11. He was never picked for India later.
