Profile

Muni Lal was a right-hand opening batsman who played for Southern Punjab and Northern India for a decade from the mid 1930s. His best performances came when playing for Northern India against Southern Punjab; in 1937-38 he made a career-best 90 in the Ranji Trophy fixture and in 1944-45 he scored 59 and 85 in the same tournament. Those constituted three of his five first-class fifties, the other two both being made in Ranji Trophy semi-finals against Bombay. He was also the editor of Crickinia, a Wisden-like Indian annual which ran for six issues from 1940 to 1945. He was murdered in his home, along with his wife, in a burglary.
