Raman Lamba was a batsman who played for India. He was hit on the temple by Mehrab Hossain while fielding at forward short leg, without a helmet, for Dhaka's leading club, Abahani Krira Chakra, in the final of the Premier Division cricket match versus Mohammendan Sporting Club at the Dhaka Bangabandhu Stadium. He was not wearing the helmet. The match was against Bangladesh. After injury he died on 23 February 1998 in the P.G. Hospital in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Raman lamba's Test career was brief, limited to four matches, three v Sri Lanka in 1986/87 and one v West Indies the following season. He only passed fifty on one occasion, at Nagpur in the second Sri Lankan match. He made 53 opening the batting and helping Mohinder Armanath, on his way to a big hundred, with a second wicket stand of 126.
In List A matches, one of which was played - without success - for Ireland, he hit seven centuries, scoring 2548 runs at 36.40. His highest score was 124* for North Zone, winners of the Deodhar Trophy, v Rest of India in 1989/90. The Rest had posted a useful looking 241, but with Raman in full cry, North Zone romped home by 9 wickets.
His appearances in ODIs were limited, but he scored 783 runs at 27. His best run was against the 1986/87 Australian side against whom, he scored two fifties, and, his solitary century at this level, 102 in the sixth and final game of the series. He was bowled by tall left arm quick Bruce Reid, but had helped his team to a decidedly useful 266-6. However Alan Border was in form, making a typical 91*, to give the visitors, about to return home to loose the Ashes to England's last successful side Down Under , a seven wicket victory.
