Profile

Ranga Sohoni toured England in 1946, Australia in 1947-48 and played against England at home in 1951-52 but was not very successful with bat or ball - his right-arm medium-paced bowling caused little worry to English and Australian batsmen. As a useful tailender, he made some valuable contributions. In his first Test, the last-wicket pair of Sohoni and Hindlekar played out the last 13 minutes to help India draw the match. In his next match, coming in at No. 9, he scored 29 not out to propel the Indian total along. In what proved to be his final Test, he played a small part in India wriggling out of trouble by getting 28 at No 10.
