Shah Nyalchand, who died on January 3, 1997, aged 77, was a left-arm medium-pace bowler who had remarkable bowling figures in his only Test for India. He was chosen to play at Lucknow against Pakistan in their second official Test and, on a jute-matting pitch, bowled 64 overs and took three for 97. However, Nazar Mohammad carried his bat and Pakistan won by an innings. Nyalchand never played for India again. He remained a stalwart in the Ranji Trophy for more than two decades, making his debut for Western India in 1939-40, going on to play for Gujarat and then captaining Saurashtra. In the last match of the 1961-62 season against Baroda he took 11 for 64, including a hat-trick spanning both innings. Frank Worrell once called him the king of matting wickets.
