|First-class span||1930/31 - 1942/43|
A forcing right-hand batsman, strong through the covers, he learnt his cricket at The Leys in Cambridge and played a few games in India, usually as captain, where he showed reasonable form. He has the connections and the ability to be selected as vice-captain for the 1932 India tour of England, although he did nothing on the trip scoring 154 runs at 9.62. Like his brother-in-law, the Marharaja of Porbandar, the captain, he sat out India's Test debut, although in his case a back injury contributed to his absence. He played little after his return, although he came back after a nine-year absence aged 40 to lead Western India to a Ranji Trophy victory.
He understands the Indian mentality better and doesn't have to deal with star players on the wane
