Prince Ranji Pop Art
K. S. Ranjitsinhji was the first Indian cricketer to play test cricket for England. Nicknamed Ranji, he also played first-class cricket for Cambridge University, and county cricket for Sussex.
A Maharaja from 1907, the Prince moniker helped establish Ranji as one of cricket’s first global superstar. Ranji became the second batsman, and first amateur, to reach 1,000 runs in the 1896 season for Sussex.
In 1896, Ranji scored 2,780 runs, which was a new record, including ten centuries and two hundreds in the same day (something that has never happened again in the history of the game).
In 1899 he made 3,159 runs and 3,065 the following year which included five double-centuries.
Credited with inventing the late cut & leg glance, Ranji made his Test debut for England on the 16th of July 1896.
Gilbert Jessop wrote of Ranji “whenever I bowled against him I felt he was impregnable… indisputably the greatest genius cricket has ever produced”.
