Madan Gopaul was a reliable opening batsman for Berbice and the Guyana East Indians in the Kawall Cup for many years in the 1940's and 1950's.
In the 1956 Kawall Cup final, in early November between Guyana Indians and Trinidad Indians at Bourda, Madan Gopal scored a patient 111 not out to help the Guyana Indians to reach 343 for 2 by the close of the first day's play.
He put on 110 for the first wicket with Rohan Kanhai, who scored a brisk 84. Gopaul then added 197 for the second wicket with Sonny Moonsammy, who scored 114. The Guyana Indians team also included Sonny Baijnauth, Wilfred Edun, Ivan Madray, Ganesh Persaud and Joe Solomon.
Guyana Indians won by an innings and 135 runs to take back the Kawall Cup, which they had last won in 1952.
A few days after the 1956 Kawall Cup final, Gopaul scored 33 for a Combined Indians XI, consisting of Indians from Guyana and Trinidad, in a drawn match against a British Guiana XI, which included Leslie Amsterdam, Basil Butcher, Glendon Gibbs, Lance Gibbs, Pat Legall, Clifford McWatt, Bruce Pairaudeau (captain), Charlie Stayers and Clyde Walcott.
Madan Gopaul's son Sen Gopaul represented Guyana in regional youth and first class cricket. He had four other children.
He was the Chief Chemist at the BG Oil and Coconut Factory, and later worked for AH & L Kissoon Ltd and Argosy Newspaper, in Georgetown. In 1980 he immigrated to Canada with his family.
