1878 – 1957
Who was Ahsan-ul-Haq?
Ahsan-ul-Haq went to England to study law where he played for Hampstead in club cricket and three first class matches for Middlesex in 1902. But his official work restricted his appearances and he soon returned to India.
At the age of 45 he captained the Muslims in the Lahore tournament of 1924. On what was his first appearance in a first class match on Indian soil, he went in last against Sikhs and scored 100 notout in 40 minutes, adding 150* for the tenth wicket with Abdus Salam. Excluding centuries made under contrived circumstances, it is the second fastest hundred ever made in first class cricket.
