Navle faced the historic first delivery of India's first Test innings in 1932. He opened in both innings at Lord's in 1932 and also kept wickets. A small man, Wisden called him "a first-rate wicket-keeper, very quick in all that he did". He played for Indians against Arthur Gilligan's MCC team in 1926-27 and Jack Ryder's Australians nine years later. For many years he kept wickets for Hindus in the Bombay Quadrangular and Pentangular tournaments. He made his debut for Hindus at the age of 16.
