Indian cricket

Eighty years since India's first Test


Ayaz Memon writes in Mint that the BCCI should do more to recognize and honour the legacy of the players who represented India in the country's first Test in 1932.

Just to highlight the point, I would have liked the BCCI to convince the government to issue a postage stamp commemorating the magnificent feat of Mohammad Nissar in the inaugural Test in 1932. If not that, then a specially commissioned book on him would have been a good substitute. These are the kind of players who have been lost in the maze of time and the lack of adequate cricket literature/documentation.
