Vijay Rajindernath About this sound pronunciation  (born 7 January 1928 in Amritsar, died 22 November 1989 in Chennai) was an Indian cricketer.

Rajindernath was one of the four wicket keepers that India tried out against Pakistan in the 1952-1953 series. He played in the Test at Bombay which India won losing only four wickets. Rajindernath did not bat but effected four stumpings, three of which were off Subhash Gupte. He still holds the Test match record for the most stumpings in a complete career without a catch.[1] He was replaced by Ebrahim Maka for the next Test. He also played in three 'Tests' against a Commonwealth XI in 1950-1951.

Rajindernath studied in Govt. College, Lahore and took M.A. in Hindi from Benares. He worked for Burmah Shell and later with Indo-Nippon batteries in Baroda.
