AMAR SINGH - THE LEGEND
The first official Indian cricket team that travelled to England in 1932 was lead by “Maharaj Natvar sinhji of Porbandar” while “the Prince of Limbdi Ghanshaym sinhji” was the vice Captain of that team. However both of them withdrew before the test match started, and Col.C.K. Naydu became the first Captain of India.
But how many of us know that there was a player in that team named “Ladha bhai Nakum Amar singh” who was from our own region of Saurashtra and that too from Rajkot. He was a right arm medium pace bowler and very useful lower order batsman. A genuine all-rounder one can say on the basis of his outstanding records in India and overseas. Len Hutton once said “there is no better bowler in this World than Amar singh”. Another England great Wally Hammond said about Amar Singh's bowling "he came off the pitch like the crack of doom".
