Profile

Figures lie in the case of some cricketers, and they certainly do in LP Jai's case. A stylish batsman who loved to play strokes, Jai's footwork was exemplary. For years he was a tower of strength to the Bombay batting and in a first-class career that spanned two decades he scored over 3000 runs at an average of a little over 31 with five centuries. But he played in only one Test, the first ever on Indian soil, against England at Bombay in 1933-34 scoring 19 and 0.
