Profile

A solid right-hand batsman, Kanwar Rai Singh was one of the surprise choices for the tour of Australia in 1947-48. His selection was met with some adverse comments and he did little to enchance his reputation on the tour. In his only Test he went in at No. 8 and scored 2 and 24 (second top score). In a first-class career that stretched for about 20 years, Rai Singh scored 1778 runs (30.13) with four centuries.
