Former England Test batter Raman Subba Row has died aged 92.

Subba Row, who won the first of his 13 England caps in 1958, played domestically for Cambridge University, Surrey and Northamptonshire.

After retiring from playing in 1961, he worked as a cricket administrator and match referee.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said Subba Row, who made three Test centuries and averaged 46.85, had been England’s oldest living men’s player.

“He was a great cricket man and his remarkable cricket career saw success both on and off the field – as a player, official, administrator and chair of both Surrey and the Test and County Cricket Board,” ECB chair Richard Thompson said.

“Our sport owes him an enormous debt of gratitude, and on behalf of the ECB, we would like to send our sincere condolences to Raman’s friends and family at this sad time.”

Subba Row was the chairman of Test and County Cricket Board, the forerunner to the ECB, for five years before he moved into refereeing.

He officiated in 41 Tests and 119 one-day internationals between 1992 and 2001.

“Raman was a respected cricketer of his era,” said Wasim Khan, the general manager of cricket at the International Cricket Council.

“He was also one of the earliest ICC match referees, officiating very ably in different parts of the world.”
