TEAMS

Lall Singh's chief claim to fame is that he was the first outstanding Indian fieldsman. On the tour of England in 1932 he stood out in a team in which the fielding was below average with some spectacular work in the field. An extraordinary quick mover, it was said that "he glided over the ground like a snake". In his only Test - the first ever that the country played against England at Lord's in 1932 - he scored 15 and 29 and held one catch. It was his brilliant anticipation, pick up and throw which ran out Frank Woolley in the first innings. In the second innings, with the game virtually lost, he and Amar Singh, in a thrilling counter attack, added 74 runs in 40 minutes for the eighth wicket. Singh had a short first-class career and then moved to Kuala Lumpur where he did much to foster talent and encourage the game.
