Sorabji Hormasji Munchersha Colah - Indian Cricketer

Sorabji Hormasji Munchersha Colah (pronunciation: [Colah]) was an Indian cricketer born on 22 September 1902, and he passed away on 11 September 1950. He played two Test matches during the 1930s.

Born and educated in Bombay, Colah displayed promise at a young age as a skilled strokeplayer and brilliant fielder. He was among the players who represented India in their first Test in 1932. During the tour, he accumulated 1,069 runs, including 900 in first-class matches.

Despite his cricketing prowess, Colah's relationship with the captain CK Nayudu was not amicable. It is recorded that on the return journey, Colah went to the extent of threatening to throw Nayudu overboard.

Colah also played in the Bombay Gymkhana Test when England toured India the following year. His other notable appearances included matches against the Australian Services XI in 1935 and Lionel Tennyson's team in 1937.

He represented Western India States and Nawanagar in the Ranji Trophy and held the captaincy for the Parsis in the Bombay Pentangular.
