Nephew of the great K.S. Ranjitsinhji, Hanumant scored a century on Test debut against England in 1963-64 but only played 13 more Tests, registering five fifties while missing a century against a touring Australia by six runs in the following season.
Compact and correct, the 'Prince of Banswara' was prolific in domestic cricket, amassing 12,338 runs at 43.90 with 29 centuries in a first-class career that spanned over 20 years.
Hanumant was a respected ICC match referee, officiating in nine Tests and 54 one-dayers between 1995 and 2002.
He has also served as selector and coached at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore where he had a hand in the development of several of the current Indian cricketers.
