Indian cricket team in Ceylon in 1956–57


Indian cricket team in Ceylon in 1956–57

The Indian national cricket team toured Ceylon in November 1956 and played two internationals against the Ceylon national team.[1] As Ceylon had not then achieved Test status, the internationals are classified as first-class matches. Both games were played at the Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu Stadium in Colombo and ended as draws.[2][3] The Indian team was captained by Polly Umrigar and included Nari Contractor, Subhash Gupte, Pankaj Roy, A. G. Kripal Singh and Vijay Manjrekar.
