Cricket: Feb 10 marks India’s first test victory

On this day, in the year 1952 India tasted its first test victory and that too by an inning and 8 runs. Polly Umrigar’s 130 not out paved the way for the historic win. He produced an innings of exquisite quality against a strong English attack.

India were trailing 0-1 going into the fifth and final Test at Chennai, then known as Madras.  The side had originally contained Adhikari, but when he suffered from a sprained wrist, Polly Umrigar was retained despite his indifferent form in the series.

It was a historic moment. It had taken India 20 years and 25 Tests to register their first victory, and the eleven players realised they had pulled off something special. However, the Indians celebrated themselves by merely patting each other on their backs. The spectators, though, went berserk, and gave the Indians a standing ovation.

The scores were England 266 and 183 and India 457 for 9 declared. India won by an innings and 8 runs.
