Read the passage and answer the following questions:

In 1933 – 34 I got my first chance to play in Test cricket in India. The M.C.C. team under Douglas Jardine was in our country to play three test matches. Fortunately I was able to do sufficient well to retain my place in all the three Tests.

During the Test matches my younger sister, Laxmi, had given me an autograph book to get the autographs of the visiting players. I had carefully put down M.C.C. Touring Team – 1933-34 on one of the pages. Under this heading I took the autographs of all the 16 players who visited India.

Two months later I had an occasion to approach Gandiji for his autograph which my sister was very keen to have. There were quite a few people present when I made my request. Gandhiji smiled and leafed through the pages of the autograph book and then underneath the names of the MC.C players wrote. ’17 – M.K. Gandhi’. I immediately understood the greatness of the man and what had prompted him. By that unforgettable signature as the seventeenth man of the M.C.C. team he showed that although he was prepared to fight the British Government tooth and nail for the independence of India, he had nothing against the common man of England and was prepared to put himself down as the seventeenth man of an English Cricket Team.
