Khershed Meherhomji toured England in 1936 as reserve wicketkeeper to DD Hindlekar and got his chance to play in the second Test at Manchester. But he achieved little of note in what turned out to his only Test, remaining unbeaten with 0 in his only innings and holding one catch to dismiss the England captain Gubby Allen off Amar Singh. Meherhomji played for many years for the Parsis in the Bombay
Quadrangular and Pentangular tournaments.
