Profile

Hanumant Singh lived regally and generously. He was born a prince and batted like one, though it enabled him to play only 14 Tests, which was too few for one with his abundant talent. Those of us who relished his association and friendship knew that Hanumant was always courteous, ever smiling and blessed with a delightful sense of humour. He detested bores and pretenders, though he was too gentle to tell them so. He kept clear of them.
