Kumar Shri Ghanshyamsinhji Daulatsinhji Jhala of Limbdi (23 October 1902 – 10 November 1964), often known as K. S. Limbdi during his cricket career, was an Indian nobleman and first-class cricketer. He was a cousin of England Test batsman Kumar Shri Duleepsinhji and brother-in-law of Natwarsinhji Bhavsinhji, the Jethwa ruler of the Princely State of Porbandar.
Ghanshyamsinhji learnt his cricket at The Leys in Cambridge. He played a few games in India but missed history when he failed to make the playing eleven during India's Test debut. A back injury contributed to his absence. He led Western India to a Ranji Trophy victory, at the age of 40. He lived in Gujarat and played his cricket for Western India. Due to his royal connections he was vice-captain of India's tour of England in 1932, but in 11 matches he made only 154 runs at an average of 9.62.
His highest score was 57, in 1931-32, playing for his own team, KS Ghanshyamsinhji of Limbdi's XII, against Maharaj Kumar of Vizianagram's XI, in a trial match for the 1932 tour.
He was second child of the ruler of the Princely State of Limbdi, Col. HH Thakur Sahib Shri Sir Daulatsinhji Jashwantsinhji (1907-1940). Being a prince, he was also known by K.S. Limbdi (Kumar Shri Limbdi).
