Ghulam Mohammad was born on July 12, 1898, in India. He bats with the right hand and bowls at medium pace with the left hand. Despite his impressive performance in trial matches, Ghulam Mohammad was selected for the tour of England in 1932. This was India’s first tour to England. Unfortunately, he picked up 3 wickets in 9 matches, and we did not consider him to play test cricket. He is in the front rank as a bowler, and with a new ball, he is a dangerous in-swinger.
Jack Hobbs, Sutcliffe, and A. E. R. Gilligan pay high tribute to his skill with the ball. He has the record of doing the hat-trick ten times and taking all ten wickets in an innings against Karachi Parsis. He is also a forceful batsman and an excellent fielder. In 1926–27, Ghulam Mohammad recorded his best figures in first-class cricket for a Muslim and Parsis team in Karachi against the touring MCC side, picking up 5 for 114 and 2 for 27.
Therefore, in 1930–31, he helped the Maharaj Kumar of Vizianagram’s XI win the inaugural Moin-ud-Dowlah Gold Cup Tournament with his highest score of 74 and five wickets. From 1924 to 1939, he played first class in India but later chose to live in Pakistan. He died on July 21, 1966, in Karachi, aged 68.
