When did Indian first play cricket?

The British brought cricket to India in the 17th and 18th century. The first cricket club in India, The Calcutta Cricket Club, was founded in 1733 (no kidding!) At first, it was played by the British and Indians didn't see what the fuss was about. The first Indians to start playing cricket were the Parsee community of Bombay (Zoroastrian refugees from Persia). As the Parsees were the Indian community that were the closest to the British, they inevitably imitated the British by taking up cricket. Cricket's popularity began to spread in Bombay the late 19th century, and the first match between Indians and the British was played in 1877, when the Zoroastrian Cricket Club played the Bombay Gymkhana in a two-day test. Hindoos took up the game in the early 20th century. The first great Indian cricketer was probably Palwankar Baloo. A member of the Chamaar caste, he was denied the opportunity to play for the Hindoos by caste politics. Eventually, his skill enabled him to overcome the practice of untouchability, and he regularly and single-handedly led India to victories against the Parsees and the British. He was a slow left arm spin bowler, who could turn it both ways and produce some decent bounce as well. He picked up 179 wickets in 33 First-Class matches at a bowling average of 15.21. Perhaps the day cricket was cemented in the hearts of Indians was when the MCC sent its first touring party to India, led by the then England Captain, Arthur Gilligan. This team consisted of 8 England International Test players including all-rounders Bob Wyatt and Maurice Tate, and Andy Sandham, the first man to score a triple century in international test cricket. They played a Hindoo XI in Bombay in November 1926. Batting first, the MCC got to a score in excess of 300. In response, CK Nayudu hit 153 in 116 minutes (approx 120 balls) with 13 sixes. It was seen as a blow to the British sense of racial superiority that an "untouchable" bowler could pick up all their wickets and a brown batsman could hit them for 13 sixes in one match. For a full history of Indian cricket, I suggest you read Ramachandra Guha's award-winning book on the Indian history of cricket, 'A Corner of a Foreign Field'.
