Profile

One of the pioneers, Nazir Ali played in India's first Test at Lord's in 1932 and then represented the country again at Madras in the final Test of the 1933-34 series. He did not enjoy much success, which was baffling, for he was a gifted attacking batsman. Besides, he was a medium-pace bowler, good enough to take 4 for 83 in the England second innings at Madras, and a splendid fielder.
