Profile

Major Syed Wazir Ali, the former Indian Test Match cricketer, died in Karachi on June 17, aged 46, after an operation for appendicitis. Elder brother of S. Nazir Ali, another Test player, Wazir Ali appeared in seven Test matches--all against England. He toured England in 1932 and 1936 and played against England in India in 1933. A fine batsman with a keen eye and a wide range of powerful strokes, Wazir Ali hit six hundreds during the 1932 tour and scored 1,725 in all matches. On his second visit to England he was handicapped by a finger injury. He missed a month's cricket, but although unable to do himself justice he hit the highest score for the Indians during the tour -- 155 not out against an England XI at Folkestone. He led the Indian team which won matches against visiting Australian sides in India in 1935 and 1936.
