There was a band at the ground to play live music. When Amarnath reached his hundred, it played God save the King, the British anthem.
As he left the ground, the women in the enclosure showered their jewellery at him. The Maharajahs of Kolhapur and Baroda announced cash rewards.
Even more people arrived the next day, some by overnight train from Poona. India lost the match, but the crowd were happy to see Amarnath live in action. They also got to see a debutant Vijay Merchant score 30.
After losing by 9 wickets, India did well in the second Test, in Calcutta. England needed only 82 to win in the end, but there was no time for them to score the runs. England won by 202 runs in Madras to take the series 2-0.
