Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Indian cricket team toured England in the 1946 season and played 29 first-class fixtures with 11 wins, 4 defeats and 14 draws. The 1946 season marked a return to normal first-class cricket in England following the end of World War II. The Test series between England and India was the first to be played in England since 1939. In its review of the 1946 season, Wisden Cricketers Almanack remarked that "the Indians were the first postwar touring side, and although they were outplayed in the Tests they raised the status and the dignity of their country's sport." Wisden also mentioned that "the weather in 1946 might have been dreadful, but it didn't stop the crowds flocking to games." The state of the weather was mentioned by John Arlott who wrote his first match report for The Guardian when the Indians played Worcestershire at New Road, Worcester on 4, 6 and 7 May. Arlott wrote that "New Road was bleak that Saturday morning... dark under the cloud, it was swept by a bitter gale howling across from Diglis."show more
