Profile

A right-arm medium-fast bowler and a useful late order batsman, Baqa Jilani toured England in 1936. In his sole Test at the Oval he scored 4* and 12 and finished wicketless, and it was widely reported that he was only picked because he had the support of the Maharajah of Vizianagram, the captain, after insutling CK Nayudu. He was the first bowler to get a hat-trick in the Ranji Trophy, in the course of his spell of 5 for 7 off 25 balls for Northern India against Southern Punjab in the inaugural year of the national competition in 1934-35.
