Description:
Amritsar Govindsingh Milkha Singh (born December 31, 1941, Madras) was an Indian Test cricketer.Mikha Singh was a left-handed batsman and an occasional right arm medium pace bowler. He came from a famous cricketing family which also produced A.G. Ram Singh and his more successful brother A.G. Kripal Singh.

He was a brilliant schoolboy cricketer and his exploits led to a first class debut at the age of 16. He represented South Zone Schools in the interzonal Cooch Behar trophy and scored 114 in the final against West Zone. This led to the vice captaincy of the Indian Schools that toured Ceylon that year.

Milkha, who studied in the Loyola College, Chennai, was twice voted the best collegiate cricketer and represented university and state. Milkha played only four matches at the Test level. He made his debut in 1959/60 against the Australians, toured Pakistan in 1960/61 and played one Test against England in 1961/62. In the Test against England, the Indian team also included A.G. Kripal Singh and Vaman Kumar, the only instance when three Tamil Nadu players appeared in an Indian side. Milkha was not even 20 when he played his last Test.

He scored over 2000 runs for Tamil Nadu in Ranji Trophy and hit the first hundred of the Duleep Trophy.
