Indian Test Cricketers | Cricketers Who Played Test Cricket for India.

The game of cricket in India was starting around the 18th century and gradually spread throughout India over a period of time.

Kumar Shri Ranjit Singh Ji is one of the legends of Indian Test cricketers from the very beginning of cricket in India, whose aggressive batting often forces the opponent team to battered.

 


Sir Ranjitsinhji was the first Indian cricket player who played Test cricket for a foreign country, He played 15 Tests for the England cricket team against Australia between 1896 and 1902 but never played any Test match for India.

India's most prestigious domestic first-class cricket tournament, the Ranji Trophy, has been named after him.

 

The Indian cricket team was played their debut Test match on 25 June 1932 at Lord's England that was a  three-day Test match. Playing their debut Test match at Lord's, India became the sixth country in the world who have the status of Test-playing nations at that time.

 

But after twenty years later, India got their first Test match win in the fifth Test match which was played at Madras Cricket Club Ground, Chepauk, Madras during England's tour of India from 6 February to 10 February.

And since then, many Indian Test Cricketers have made their valuable contribution from time to time in Indian Test cricket, whose brief description is given here.
