MPCA deeply regrets to inform about the sad demise of Mr. Rameshwar Pratap Singh, former Ranji Cricketer of the Holkar side, who left for heavenly abode this morning. He was 94.
His name is inked in the history of cricket as he was one of the 6 batsmen from the Holkar team who scored century apiece in the same innings of the Ranji tie against Mysore (played at Yeshwant Club from 2 – 5 march 1946). Mr. Rameshwar Pratap Singh scored exact 100 in this thrilling innings which shall be remembered forever. According to information available, he was the last surviving Holkar Team player.
He was a role model and source of inspiration for the aspiring cricketers of that era. After his playing years, he continued with his contribution to cricket by giving priceless guidance to the budding cricketers of that period. He was the recipient of MPCA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.
The Office Bearers, Members of the Managing Committee, all Life Members, Past & Present Cricketers, and associates of MPCA are severely pained by his demise and join me to express heartfelt condolences to his bereaved family.
Hon. Secretary, MPCA
