The team was defeated 4—1 by Australia, who were superior tactically and had the better players in general. The next morning, as England lost wickets, he attacked the bowlers and took his score to , scoring mainly from cuts and leg glances.

He batted for minutes and reached the highest score for England in Test matches; the record lasted for six years.

England won the match by nine wickets, but this was their only success of the series. He and Archie MacLaren were the only two tourists to come to terms with the conditions and bowling; despite being labelled a poor starter by the press, Ranjitsinhji batted cautiously in each match, possibly attempting to emulate the Australian approach of accumulating runs carefully.

Although highly self-critical in the articles, he criticised, among other things, the behaviour of the crowds, the refusal of Australian critics to accept that England had to bat in poor conditions in the second Test, and some opposing players.

He was generally very popular in Australia with crowds, the general public and influential figures in society, [] although following these comments, the crowds at some matches barracked him while he was batting.

On arrival there, Ranjitsinhji left the team to return to India with the intention of pursuing his claim to the throne of Nawanagar. Later, he met Pratap Singh, who had arranged for Ranjitsinhji to receive an honorary state appointment with an associated income.

Pratap Singh also introduced him to Rajinder Singh , the Maharaja of Patiala, a very wealthy individual. Rajinder was very pro-British and an enthusiastic cricketer and soon became friends with Ranjitsinhji; he subsequently provided Ranjitsinhji with another source of income.

He also spent time with his mother and family in Sarador. Although he scored in one game, in another he failed to score in either innings, the only time this happened to him in any form of cricket.

The British administration in India were concerned by Ranjitsinhji; some individuals suspected that he intended to cause trouble in Nawanagar and wished to keep him out of the region.

Others supported him, believing he had been treated unfairly. He argued that he had been adopted as heir before being set aside without and enquiry, and that Jassaji was illegitimate.

Returning to England at the beginning of the cricket season, Ranjitsinhji immediately resumed playing cricket.

His health seemed improved and financial assistance from his supporters in India gave him respite from monetary worries.

His tactics were unorthodox as he took risks to ensure that he faced most of the bowling, even though he was batting with recognised batsmen.

However, as the innings progressed, he rediscovered his batting touch. In total, he scored 3, runs at an average of He was dismissed for low scores in the second and third games, but was slightly more successful with 21 and 49 not out in the fourth and he hit 54 in the final match.

In a low-scoring series, Ranjitsinhji scored runs at In June , Ranjitsinhji was appointed Sussex captain after Murdoch retired, ahead of other amateur cricketers.

He took the opportunity of leading the side to increase the amount of bowling he did, taking 31 wickets in the season.

Ranjitsinhji continued to score heavily throughout the season. After a slow start in cold weather, in the space of nine days, he hit scores of 97, , and not out, followed by a week later.

He was successful in a variety of conditions and match situations, and after some criticism of his ability to play on difficult pitches for batting, scored 89 against Somerset and against Middlesex on rain affected pitches.

Against Leicestershire, he achieved his highest score until then, making in five hours. Consequently, Ranjitsinhji played the drive more frequently.

Without abandoning his delightful leg-side strokes or beautifully timed cuts, he probably got the majority of his runs by drives—a notable change from his early years as a great cricketer.

He suffered from ill-health early in the season and struggled in the first months. His later form was better and he made the highest score of his career, against Somerset, but several leg break bowlers took his wicket and some of his innings were played in easier batting conditions or during less competitive circumstances.

Through his solicitor, Ranjitsinhji claimed that his debt to one creditor only came through his acting on behalf of Pratap Singh and Sardar Singh, the Maharaja of Jodhpur.

Ranjitsinhji returned to England in mid-May and immediately resumed the captaincy of Sussex. However, a succession of low scores and uncertain performances suggested that he was neither mentally nor physically fit for cricket and Simon Wilde writes that his failure to secure support in India and the continued pressure of threatened bankruptcy placed him in a difficult situation.

However, he seemed to be nervous and struggled to concentrate, running out his captain, Archie MacLaren before he was out himself for However, he faced serious distractions from his parlous financial situation as one of his creditors presented him with a demand for payment shortly before the game.

Ranjitsinhji claimed after the match, falsely, that Pratap Singh intended to pay the debt but needed approval from the India Office, but it is likely that Ranjitsinhji anticipated another petition in bankruptcy going before a court and that this affected his performance in the Test.

In the latter innings, when England had a relatively small target to chase for victory, he looked to have lost all confidence and could have been dismissed several times; the Australian players thought he played more poorly than they had ever seen.

His lack of belief may also have contributed to the defeat, as Fred Tate notoriously dropped an important catch fielding, according to Simon Wilde, in a position which Ranjitsinhji was more likely to fill in normal circumstances.

The real reason for his poor performance has remained the knowledge of only a very few. At the time, a polite veil was drawn over his failure, but he was never to play for England again.

After the Test, Ranjitsinhji played only a few more games that season. After two batting failures for Sussex, he dropped out of the team, even though the side were in contention for the County Championship, eventually finishing second.

Part of the reason may have been to pre-empt his omission from the England team for the final Test, a match he attended as a spectator, but he did not return to Sussex after the match.

The press speculated he had walked out on the team; among the reasons suggested were disappointment with the performances of the side, dissatisfaction with the bowlers and efforts to recruit new players, and his falling out with the professional players.

The local press criticised him for abandoning the team at a crucial phase of the season, and praised Brann, his replacement.

Ranjitsinhji managed to raise enough money, probably through a loan, to head off the threat of bankruptcy. He spent the winter there, adding to the speculation surrounding him.

After alleviating some of his financial concerns through journalism and writing, Ranjitsinhji was able to return to cricket. Ranjitsinhji scored 1, runs at He played more regularly for Sussex and missed just two matches but displayed a reduced commitment to the club and resigned the captaincy in December, Fry assuming the role.

The difficult pitches forced him to play more defensively than usual and on a couple of occasions, crowds jeered him for slow scoring.

In separate matches, Len Braund and Walter Mead , bowlers who had troubled him in previous years, both took his wicket before he had scored many runs.

Loans from an acquaintance from his school days, Mansur Khachar, as well as from the Nawab of Junagadh , allowed him to return to England for the following season.

In , Ranjitsinhji led the batting averages for the fourth time, scoring 2, runs at This included a highest score of not out against Lancashire where Wisden reported that "From the first ball to the last in that superb display he was at the highest pitch of excellence, and beyond that the art of batting cannot go.

Furthermore, many of his runs came in less important matches, away from the pressure of the County Championship. His innings of , regarded by some critics as one of his best innings, helped the team to score an unlikely runs in the final innings to defeat the Players.

Four years after his previous appearances, and now known as H. Playing mainly in Sussex and London, he had put on weight and could no longer play in the same extravagant style he had previously used.

Playing in many less competitive fixtures, he scored 1, runs at In , aged 39, Ranjitsinhji returned to England and played once more.

Restricted for a period by a wrist injury, he nevertheless scored four centuries, including one against the touring Australian team.

At times, his form briefly touched that of his best years but most of his cricket was played in the South of England.

He scored 1, runs at Possibly prompted by embarrassment at his performance, he later claimed his sole motivation for returning was to write a book about batting with one eye; such a book was never published.

In total, Ranjitsinhji scored 24, runs at an average of He scored 72 hundreds. Despite the discovery of an assassination plot on his life, in which Ranjitsinhji was implicated, [] Jassaji took over the administration of Nawanagar from the British in March Immediately afterwards, he chose to miss three Championship games at short notice and visited Edith Borrisow in Gilling for 10 days; Simon Wilde suggests that Ranjitsinhji had at this point chosen to leave for India after the cricket season.

On 9 October , Ranjitsinhji departed for India, accompanied by Archie MacLaren, with whom Ranjitsinhji had developed a close friendship on the tour to Australia in —98, and who now became his personal secretary.

Ranjitsinhji tried unsuccessfully to arrange an official meeting with Curzon to discuss the succession to Nawanagar and then chose to remain in India to cultivate his relationships with British officials, although there was little chance he could achieve much with regard to Nawanagar.

Instead, Mansur Khuchar discovered that Ranjitsinhji had attempted to trick him into providing more money and had repeatedly lied to him; in May he took Ranjitsinhji to Bombay High Court, insisting Ranjitsinhji repaid the money lent to him.

This action kept him in India throughout and most of and prevented his return to England, where his absence was noted but could not be explained.

Although he had been in good health, Jassaji died on 14 August after developing a fever two weeks previously. Taking advantage of being in India, Ranjitsinhji quickly persuaded Mansur Khachar to withdraw his court claim in return for paying him in full upon his succession.

He also secured declarations of direct or partial support from several other states. He also used British newspapers to further his claim.

An appeal from Lakhuba, which was eventually unsuccessful, delayed proceedings but Ranjitsinhji was installed as Jam Sahib on 11 March Security was heavy and shortly after the ceremony and in unfamiliar surroundings, Ranjitsinhji secretly adopted a nephew as his heir.

Ranjitsinhji faced many challenges upon assuming control of Nawanagar. The state, following a drought several years before, was poor, suffered poverty and disease.

In , approximately thirty people were dying from disease each day in the capital city, Jamnagar. When he first saw it, Ranjitsinhji described Jamnagar as "an evil slum".

Possibly prompted by his difficulty adjusting, Ranjitsinhji made little progress in his first four months. He made enquiries into improving the collection of his land revenue, began to build a cricket pitch and went on shooting expeditions.

He recovered well, but his doctor reported to Fitzgerald that Ranjitsinhji needed a year in England to recover.

Fitzgerald had misgivings about the level of expenditure involved and was concerned that opponents may plot while the ruler was away, but had to accept the decision.

Upon arriving in England, Ranjitsinhji hired a country house at Shillinglee and spent much of his time entertaining guests, hunting and playing cricket.

Such a lifestyle was expensive, but there is no evidence he paid many bills and ran up considerable debts. However, he made no attempt to pay for his lifestyle and ignored any requests for payment sent to him.

Mansur Khachar came to England in an attempt to recover his loan, and contacted the India Office. He claimed Ranjitsinhji repeatedly misled him, although he could not provide evidence for all of his statements.

Ranjitsinhji denied many of the claims but agreed to repay the initial loan to prevent embarrassment if the story got out.

He offered to repay half of the sum, but in the event gave back less than a quarter. Ranjitsinhji became increasingly uncooperative and when the finished work arrived two weeks afterwards, he eventually returned them, stating that he was dissatisfied with the likeness.

In response, Tayler issued a writ for guineas. But when Tayler discovered that this was untrue, [note 8] she wrote to the India Office.

Ranjitsinhji had his name taken out of the claim on the grounds that he was a ruling sovereign, a view which was supported by the India Office.

During his visit Ranjitsinhji resumed his first-class cricket career in the season, [] and also visited the Borrisow family in Gilling East.

At the time, he was contemplating marriage and locals believed he was in love with Edith Borrisow. While he may have pursued the matter, objections from her father and the potential scandal in both British and Rajput circles at a mixed-race marriage prevented anything coming of it.

By the end of the season, Ranjitsinhji was under pressure. At a farewell dinner to celebrate his cricket feats, some notable figures from cricket and the India Office were absent..

Rumours spread over his financial unreliability and stories appeared in the press that he was considering abdication. Concerned and embarrassed by the negative publicity, the India Office advised Ranjitsinhji to be more careful with money.

In December , he returned to India although two months remained on his lease at Shillinglee. Ranjitsinhji returned from England to find that many of his staff had left and several assassination plans had been uncovered.

Rumours spread that he was about to abdicate. He tried to reclaim land given away by previous rulers and although he reduced revenue taxation, he imposed an additional land rent which, coupled with severe drought, led to rebellion in some villages; Ranjitsinhji ordered his army to destroy them in retribution.

He did so at the earliest opportunity in Lord Winterton once again asked questions in the House of Commons, this time about money Ranjitsinhji owed to the Coupe Company for architectural designs.

However, it is possible that Edith Borrisow stayed regularly at the palace. When the First World War began in August , Ranjitsinhji declared that the resources of his state were available to Britain, including a house that he owned at Staines which was converted into a hospital.

In November , he left to serve at the Western Front, leaving Berthon as administrator. Ranjitsinhji went to France but the cold weather badly affected his health and he returned to England several times.

While on foot, he was accidentally shot in the right eye by another member of the party. After travelling to Leeds via the railway at Scarborough, a specialist removed the badly damaged eye on 2 August.

He spent two months recuperating in Scarborough and after attending the funeral of W. Her father died in and she and her sister moved away from Gilling, eventually settling in Staines where Ranjitsinhji had a house.

However, she refused as she had fallen in love with someone else, and the engagement ended after 18 years. Sewell also claimed that her father had come to approve of the proposed marriage.

However, the story may not be reliable and Simon Wilde speculates that Borrisow had simply tired of waiting and broke off the engagement.

It is likely the pair remained friends, but Ranjitsinhji was deeply affected by the end of the relationship. While Ranjitsinhji was in Europe at the start of the war, Berthon remained in Nawanagar as Administrator and began to implement modernisation programmes.

He organised the clearance of slums in Jamnagar and new houses, shops and roads were built. Ranjitsinhji disagreed and threatened to abdicate if he was forced to retain Berthon.

As a compromise, Berthon remained in Nawanagar but in an ostensibly more lowly position; in return, Ranjitsinhji was given more outward displays of favour, including the upgrading of Nawanagar to a gun salute state and the centre of its liaison with the British was transferred from the Government of Bombay to the Government of India.

Furthermore, Ranjitsinhji personally was entitled to a gun salute [note 11] and officially granted the title of Maharaja. Encouraged by the British, the port was successful and thanks to favourable costs and charges it was used by many traders.

He acquired many properties in India, and while retaining his property in Staines in England, bought a castle in Ballynahinch on the west coast of Ireland.

From , he once more visited England but could now do so regularly and subsequently split his time each year between India and the British Isles.

However, according to journalist Simon Wilde , Ranjitsinhji was never happy. Possibly, he felt more at home in England and in the company of his British friends, and never felt a connection with Nawanagar.

Although Ranjitsinhji had no children, he was very close to his nephews and nieces; they lived in his palaces and he sent them to Britain to study.

He encouraged his nephews to take up cricket and several of them had minor success in school cricket. The most effective was Duleepsinhji; critics spotted a similarity to Ranjitsinhji in his style and he had a successful county and Test career until he was forced to give up the game through illness in However, he felt pressured by Ranjitsinhji and said that he only played to keep Ranjitsinhji happy.

For much of the remainder of his life, Ranjitsinhji devoted his time to supporting the interests of the Indian Princes. He attempted to unite his fellow princes against the advance of democracy, the Independence Movement and the growing hostility of the Indian National Congress.

He was instrumental in the formation of the Chamber of Princes. Fry, who wrote his speeches.

While in Bournemouth, he took more interest in cricket, achieving success in local matches which suggested he possessed talent, but little refinement of technique.

According to Wilde, by the time he returned to Trinity in September , he was beginning to realise the benefit of others believing him to be a person of importance, something that was to lead to him adopting the title "Prince Ranjitsinhji", although he had no right to call himself a "Prince".

Significantly, the trip planted the seed in his mind that he might find success as a cricketer. In June , Ranjitsinhji left the Borrisow home and, with monetary assistance from relations, [31] moved into his own rooms in the city of Cambridge.

He lived in luxury and frequently entertained guests lavishly. Ross believes that his generosity may have partly arisen from trying to overcome these barriers.

He intended to pass the examinations to be called to the Bar and wrote to ask Vibhaji to provide more money to cover the costs; Vibhaji sent the money on the condition Ranjitsinhji returned to India once he passed the examination.

At first, Ranjitsinhji had hoped to be awarded a Blue at tennis, but, possibly inspired by his visit to see the Australians play in , he decided to concentrate on cricket.

In and , he played local cricket of a low standard, [34] but following his stay in Bournemouth, he set out to improve his cricket. His highest score was just 23 not out , [36] [37] but he was selected for a South of England team to play a local side—which had 19 players to make the match more competitive—and his score of 34 was the highest in the game.

Around this time, Ranjitsinhji began to work with Daniel Hayward , a first-class cricketer and the father of future England batsman Thomas Hayward , on his batting technique.

His main fault was a tendency to back away from the ball when facing a fast bowler , making it more likely he would be dismissed. This affected his future batting technique and contributed to his creation of the leg glance , a shot with which he afterwards became associated.

He found he could then flick the ball behind his legs, a highly unorthodox shot and likely, for most players, to result in their dismissal.

Ranjitsinhji began to establish a reputation for unorthodox cricket, and attracted some interest to his play, [43] but important cricketers did not take him seriously as he played contrary to the accepted way for an amateur or university batsman, established by the conventions in English public schools.

At least one Cambridge University cricketer believed that Ranjitsinhji should have played for the team in ; he played in two trial games with moderate success, but Jackson believed he was not good enough to play first-class cricket.

Jackson was probably also the reason Ranjitisinhji did not play cricket for Trinity College until , despite his success for other teams.

That winter, Jackson had taken part in a cricket tour of India, where he was impressed by the standard of cricket. Lockwood noted how much Ranjitsinhji had improved through practice and told Jackson he believed Ranjitsinhji was better than several players in the University team.

He made his first-class debut for Cambridge on 8 May against a team selected by Charles Thornton ; he batted at number nine in the batting order and scored He grew in confidence as the season progressed; critics commented on several occasions on the effectiveness of his cut shot and his fielding was regarded as exceptionally good.

His batting made a great impression on spectators, who gave him an ovation at the end of the game. The game appears to be the first occasion in first-class cricket where Ranjitsinhji used the leg glance.

He was given a good reception by the crowd but scored only 9 and 0 in the game, which his team won. He took nineteen catches, mainly at slip.

Following his success at cricket, Ranjitsinhji was more widely accepted within Trinity. Nor did he make any attempt to return to India, despite his assurances to Vibhaji.

Instead, his developing friendship with Billy Murdoch and C. Fry led to Ranjitsinhji becoming interested in playing cricket for Sussex.

It is likely that, although he would play as an amateur , the club offered Ranjitsinhji a financial inducement, as was common for leading amateurs; given his monetary difficulties and unwillingness to return home, he was unlikely to refuse the offer.

Consequently, he could neither find any batting form nor build on his achievements of the previous year. Although struggling to bat against off spin in one game, he scored 94 while sharing a partnership of runs with W.

Despite debts which continued to mount, [69] Ranjitsinhji prepared thoroughly before the season, practising in the nets at Cambridge with Tom Hayward and scoring heavily in club matches.

In minutes, he scored runs and took his team close to an improbable victory; he became increasingly attacking throughout the innings and dominated the scoring.

At the end, although his team lost, he was given an ovation by the crowd who were impressed by his strokeplay. For the rest of the season, Ranjitsinhji made a vivid impression wherever he played.

Crowds were substantially increased at matches in which he appeared and he established a reputation for brilliant batting and shots on the leg side.

He scored centuries against Middlesex and Nottinghamshire in very difficult batting conditions, and his batting against the latter was regarded by critics as among the best of the season.

Shortly before the season began, Vibhaji died; his year-old son Jaswantsinhji officially succeeded to the throne on 10 May, while Ranjitsinhji was playing for Sussex against the MCC, taking the new name Jassaji.

The British appointed an Administrator to rule until he reached an appropriate age to assume the responsibility of a ruler.

Some stories circulated that his father was the ruler of an Indian state and that he had been deprived of his rightful position as ruler of Nawanagar; despite his protestations that this was not correct, it is likely that Ranjitsinhji was the source of these stories.

It is possible he began planning to contest the position, prompted by the enquiries of the press and his claim to be a prince.

Ranjitsinhji played several large innings at the start of the season, scoring faster and impressing critics with more daring shots.

Before June, he had hit hundreds against the highly regarded Yorkshire bowlers and in match-saving performances against Gloucestershire and Somerset and became the second batsman, and first amateur, to reach 1, runs in the season.

These performances brought him into contention for a place in the England team for the first Test match , but although his form merited selection, he was not chosen by the MCC committee which chose the team.

Lord Harris was primarily responsible for the decision, possibly under influence from the British Government; Simon Wilde believed they may have feared establishing a precedent that made races interchangeable or wished to curtail the involvement of Indians in British political life.

Even so, the decision to omit Ranjitsinhji took a long time, proved unpopular when it was made and led to discussion in the press.

The team for the second Test was chosen by a different committee, [note 4] and Ranjitsinhji was included, probably for financial reasons to attract more spectators.

Ranjitsinhji made his Test debut on 16 July After a cautious 62 in his first innings, he batted again when England followed on , runs behind.

After the second day, he had scored 42 and on the final morning, he scored runs before the lunch interval , surviving a fast, hostile spell from Jones and playing many shots on the leg side to reach the first century scored that season against the tourists.

His final score was not out, [86] and the next highest score for England on the last day was He was given an enthusiastic reception by the crowd and the report in Wisden stated: He repeatedly brought off his wonderful strokes on the leg side, and for a while had the Australian bowlers quite at his mercy.

Home Gordon , a journalist, praised Ranjitsinhji in a conversation with an MCC member; the man angrily threatened to have Gordon expelled from the MCC for "having the disgusting degeneracy to praise a dirty black.

Over the next weeks, Ranjitsinhji lost form, and after failing twice in the third Test, missed the last day of the match suffering from asthma, [90] but he scored heavily after this.

After sharing a big partnership with Fry for Sussex against the Australian team, he scored 40 and , with little support from other batsmen, to save the match against Lancashire , the runners up in the County Championship.

In the following match against Yorkshire, on 22 August , the County Champions that season, he scored two centuries on the last day of the game as Sussex saved the match after following on; prior to this, only four men had scored two centuries in the same first-class game, and as of , no-one else has scored two on the same day.

Grace, and hit 10 centuries, equalling another record of Grace. His average of Instead he began to turn his attention to the Nawanagar succession, beginning to make enquiries in India as to his position.

Meanwhile, the financial expectations of behaving as a prince pushed Ranjitsinhji even further into debt, and his allowance had been stopped after he had been given an advance on it to cover earlier money owed.

He wrote to Willoughby Kennedy, the English Administrator of Nawanagar, asking for money but none was forthcoming. He took the opportunity to begin work on a cricket book which a publisher had invited him to write; Ranjitsinhji contributed seven chapters and other writers contributed the rest, then he and Fry revised the book together while travelling through Europe in the spring of The book was released in August under the title The Jubilee Book of Cricket , [note 5] and was a success, both commercially and with the critics: Having been named one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year for his performances in , [47] Ranjitsinhji began the season strongly, scoring for Sussex against the MCC then, playing for MCC against Lancashire hit A succession of low scores on a series of difficult pitches ended when he scored three centuries in July, but in the remainder of the season he only once passed fifty.

He suffered from asthma throughout the season, and some commentators blamed the stress of producing his book. However, he may also have been distracted by his interest in the Nawanagar succession.

The team was defeated 4—1 by Australia, who were superior tactically and had the better players in general. The next morning, as England lost wickets, he attacked the bowlers and took his score to , scoring mainly from cuts and leg glances.

He batted for minutes and reached the highest score for England in Test matches; the record lasted for six years.

England won the match by nine wickets, but this was their only success of the series. He and Archie MacLaren were the only two tourists to come to terms with the conditions and bowling; despite being labelled a poor starter by the press, Ranjitsinhji batted cautiously in each match, possibly attempting to emulate the Australian approach of accumulating runs carefully.

On arrival there, Ranjitsinhji left the team to return to India with the intention of pursuing his claim to the throne of Nawanagar.

Later, he met Pratap Singh, who had arranged for Ranjitsinhji to receive an honorary state appointment with an associated income.

Pratap Singh also introduced him to Rajinder Singh , the Maharaja of Patiala, a very wealthy individual. Rajinder was very pro-British and an enthusiastic cricketer and soon became friends with Ranjitsinhji; he subsequently provided Ranjitsinhji with another source of income.

He also spent time with his mother and family in Sarador. Although he scored in one game, in another he failed to score in either innings, the only time this happened to him in any form of cricket.

The British administration in India were concerned by Ranjitsinhji; some individuals suspected that he intended to cause trouble in Nawanagar and wished to keep him out of the region.
