Profile

Another of the cricketers who never quite got their due, Milkha Singh was a dashing left-hand batsman and a fine fielder. An outstanding schoolboy cricketer, Milkha made his Ranji Trophy debut at 17 and played his first Test when just after his 18th birthday. But his four Tests were played in a period of less than two years and his career was over before he was 20. Though he continued to be a prolific and stylish run getter in first-class cricket in the early and mid sixties, he was surprisingly not considered again.
