Profile

Rustomji Jamshedji made his Test debut at the age of 41 years, 27 days and is still the oldest Indian to play his first Test. But he made his presence felt in what turned out to be his only Test, against England at Bombay in 1933-34. A slow left-armer, Jamshedji took the wickets of Charlie Barnett, Bryan Valentine and Leslie Townsend for 137 runs in the first innings as England piled up 438 on their way to victory by nine wickets.
