Thos writing Rusi Jeejeebhoy was another Parsi to play Test cricket for India are wrong. He went on the WI tour of 1971 but never played a Test. A total of 11 Parsi men have played Test cricket for India plus Ronnie Irani for England

Farokh Engineer should consider the percentage of Parsis in Indian population and should be happy that they have got more representation percentage wise than other communities.
Mr Engineer has forgotten the name of Rusi Jijibhoy of Kolkata, who toured West Indies with Ajit Wadekar's team. Like Engineer, he also kept wickets. It is on record that Mr Engineer once himself said that after him his place should be taken over by Jijibhoy. Jijibhoy is therefore the fifth Parsee who played for India.
Faroukh Engineer deserves the C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award beyond any doubt. BCCI should immediately honour this great, courageous(in those days of uncovered pitches, no helmets it required great courage and skill to take on and hit great fast bowlers on the front foot) and entertaining cricketer.
Dear Engineer Sahib you are the most loved smart cricketer and out standing keeper that cricket world will always remember you and your professional excellence , its unfortunate that BCCI working is so poor and biased that excellence and spirit of game and talent we are loosing every day.
