Nari Contractor

Nari Contractor was a left-handed opening batsman who represented the Indian national cricket team in 31 Tests. His international career was cut short by an injury in 1962. He was struck on the skull by a delivery from West Indian bowler Charlie Griffith in the game against Barbados. He needed several emergency operations and was unconscious for several days and needed blood transfusion. The then West Indies captain Frank Worrell was the first to donate his blood. He shot to fame by hitting 92 against the West Indies at Delhi in 1958-59. He attracted attention on the 1959 England tour when he top scored with 81 out of India’s total of 168 despite suffering from a broken rib. Later that year his 74 in the second innings at Kanpur proved to be crucial in India’s first Test victory over Australia. He scored 438 runs including his one and only Test century against the strong Australian side at Bombay in 1959-60. He became the captain at the age of 26 against Pakistan in 1960-61. In the next season, he captained the side to a historic series victory over England. He played first class cricket for nearly two decades scoring 8611 runs at an average of 39.86 with 22 centuries.
