Recalling all England tours to India

England is among the very few teams that gave India a run for their money on Indian soil
Sabyasachi Chakraborty

England's past in India

England have toured India since the early 1930s and 83 years later, there’s no love lost between the age-old antagonists. Though sub-continent conditions are more tilted towards India, the Englishmen didn’t let themselves go into their shells.

Rather, they countered fire with fire and even got India in a spot of bother quite a few times. The following elaborations of England’s adventure in India will tell many stories.

England tour of India 1933/34

Winner: England 2-0

Captain

England: Douglas Jardine

India: C.K. Nayudu

Douglas Jardine ensured that India was unable to win a single Test on their debut on home soil

The tour will be etched in the memories as India’s inaugural Test series at home. C.K Nayudu’s India had everything in their favour - The crowd, the pitch, enthusiasm. What they lacked is the experience and England didn’t take time to cash in the inexperience of the Indian team.

Though India drew one of the 3 matches, they never looked like getting England on the mat during any stage of the remaining two matches. Douglas Jardine and Co ensured that the series was wrapped up with ease.

Cyril Walters was the top run scorer with 284 runs and left-arm orthodox bowler Hedley Verity was the top wicket taker in the series with 23 wickets. Lala Amarnath and Amar Singh were the top run-getter and top wicket-taker for India with 203 runs and 14 wickets.

Though Nigel Howard didn’t taste much success in his international career, he fitted in well for Lancashire

Winner: Draw 1-1

Captain

India: Vijay Hazare

England: Nigel Howard

India had to wait for 18 more years before they went to play England for yet another Test series. Yet again, India was on the brink of another series drubbing at England’s hands, but instead they recorded their first Test win versus England at Madras (now Chennai) in the final Test of the series.

The win dodged a series loss for the Indians and they managed to eke out a draw. Allan Watkins was England’s top run-scorer with 450 runs while Vinoo Mankad stupendously picked up 34 wickets in 5 matches.

Winner: Draw 0-0

Captain

India: Nawab of Pataudi Jnr

England: Mike Smith

No team won a match in the series. For the first time, the top 3 run-getters of the series belonged to India with Budhi Kunderan (525 runs at 52.50), Dilip Sardesai (449 runs at 44.90) and M.L Jaisimha (444 runs at 44.40) topping the list. The bowling department didn't fare very well as Salim Durrani, India’s highest wicket-taker in the series, picked up only 11 wickets at an average of 42.81 and a dismal strike rate of 119.4.

For England, Colin Cowdrey impressed with 309 runs at an average of 103. Skipper Mike Smith led from the front with an average of 51. Nevertheless, it was right-arm off-break bowler Fredrick Titmus, who stood out for England churning out 27 wickets at a miserly economy of 1.87.

Tony Lewis was the last English cricketer to captain his side on Test Debut

Winner: India 2-1

Captain

India: Ajit Wadekar

England: Tony Lewis

The series marked India’s second Test series win on home soil against England. India had their backs to the wall when they lost the first Test match at the Kotla. Nonetheless, that didn’t curb them into submission. India came back with two thumping wins at Calcutta (now Kolkata) and Madras (now Chennai).

Farookh Engineer was the top-run getter of the series. Skipper Ajit Wadekar didn’t disappoint either, scoring 312 runs at 34.66. Indian spinners made hay with Bhagwat Chandrasekhar and Bishen Singh Bedi picking up 35 and 25 wickets respectively.

England had their moments in the field. Cavalier Tony Greig mustered 382 runs at 63.66 with a top score of 148. Right arm fast medium bowler Geoff Arnold eked out 17 wickets in 4 matches.

Under Tony Greig,England defeated India in a Test series on Indian soil after 44 years

Winner: England 3-1

Captain

India: Bishen Singh Bedi

England: Tony Greig

It was England’s turn to turn the table as they humbled India by 3-1 in the 5-match series. England managed a Test series win in India after 44 years. India salvaged some pride after winning a solitary Test at Bangalore, but it was all too late to make any sort of impact in the series. Tony Greig’s sharp leadership skills also helped the cause.

Dennis Amiss turned out to be the leading run scorer in the series with 417 runs at 52.12. It was left-arm orthodox bowler Derek Underwood and right-arm fast medium bowler John Lever who hammered down nails in the coffin of India’s chances in the series. They piled up 29 and 26 wickets respectively to push the Indians back.

Sunil Gavaskar was India’s primary batting mainstay as he scored 394 runs with a solitary hundred. Skipper Bishen Singh Bedi fought hard with 25 wickets, but it all turned out to be in vain.

Captain

India: Gundappa Vishwanath

A one off Test match staged at the Wankhede stadium between the old rivals, India won the toss and decided to bat. Sunil Gavaskar paved his way to a well-composed 49 runs. From 102/1, India slumped to 197/8. 9th and 10th wicket partnerships of 26 and 19 involving Syed Kirmani, lifted them to 242. Ian Botham wreaked havoc with 6 wickets for 58 runs in his 22.5 overs.

Botham terrorised India with the bat too, as he hammered his way to 114 runs off 144 balls, which included 17 boundaries. England was reeling at 58/5. Botham and Bob Taylor’s partnership of 171 runs pulled England back from nowhere. England, as a result, replied with a competitive 296 runs. Karsan Ghavri picked up 5 wickets for 52 runs.

India fell apart in their second innings for a paltry 149 runs. Ian Botham ripped India apart, with bowling figures of 7 for 58. Kapil Dev tried to pull things back with a gritty 45, but England were too good to let India make a comeback. With a target of 96 runs, it was a walk in the park for England as they cantered to a 10 wicket victory.
