TEAMS

An attacking batsman, Colah was one of the automatic choices for the first tour of England in 1932. He did fairly well in the first-class matches but made 22 and 4 in the only Test. A brilliant fielder, he picked up two catches. He also played against England at Bombay, India's next Test and the first to be played on Indian soil. Going in late in the order, he made 31 and 12 and that remained the extent of his Test career. Colah remained a pillar for Western India, Nawanagar and Bombay during a first-class career that stretched from 1922 to 1942, making 3578 runs at an average of almost 29.08 including six centuries.
