The 1962–63 Ranji Trophy was the 29th season of the Ranji Trophy. Bombay won the title defeating Rajasthan in the final.

Highlights[edit]

  • 8-ball overs were used for the only time in Ranji Trophy.
  • Following India's 0-5 loss to West Indies in the 1961-62 away series, BCCI contracted four West Indians bowlers to play in the Ranji Trophy. Thus Charlie Stayers played for Bombay, Roy Gilchrist for Hyderabad, Lester King for Bengal and Chester Watson for Delhi.
  • Subhash Gupte took 15 for 104 for Rajasthan v Vidarbha.[3] This was the best bowling in a match in Ranji Trophy till 1985-86.[4]
  • Rajinder Goel took 6 for 6 in four overs for Northern Punjab v Southern Punjab.[5]
  • Pankaj Roy scored hundreds in both innings for Bengal v Hyderabad in the quarter final.[6] This match involved fiery bowling by the West Indian fast bowlers Roy Gilchrist and Lester King
  • G. S. Ramchand scored a hundred in his third successive Ranji final, a unique feat.
