6) Pankaj and Pranab Roy
Before Sourav Ganguly, Pankaj Roy was the greatest cricketer to emerge from West Bengal. An enigma of an opening batsman, he had periods of success interspersed with those of failure.
Roy twice reached three figures in his maiden Test series against England in 1951-52. The following summer, however, he struggled in England and suffered five ducks in his seven Test innings. He finished with 2442 runs at an average of 32.56 and 5 centuries.
His son, Pranab, played 2 test matches for India in 1982. Like his father he was also an opening batsman, although he could never reach those heights. Pankaj’s nephew, Ambar Roy, played 4 test matches in 1969.
