Profile

Colonel K. M. Mistri, the Grand Old Man of Indian cricket, died on July 22, 1959, at the age of 84. A brilliant stroke player, he was India's finest left-handed batsman. Nearly all Mistri's first-class cricket in India was played for the Parsecs in the annual Presidency matches, his first appearance being in 1893. These games were held in Bombay and Poona in the monsoon season, under conditions favourable to bowlers - and heavy scoring was at a premium. Mistri played many fine innings but a century eluded him, his highest score being 95 and he remains one of the best of all batsmen who failed to reach three figures in the highest class of cricket. He was also a very useful left-handed bowler and in the Presidency match of 1902 he took 13 wickets for 72 runs and in the following year 11 wickets for 68.
