Amol Anil Muzumdar (born 11 November 1974) is an Indian cricketer, domestically, having previously played for Mumbai and Assam. He is primarily a right-handed batsman. Muzumdar holds the world record for the highest-ever score by a player on his first-class debut. He held the record for the most runs scored in the Ranji Trophy, India's premier domestic first-class cricket competition, breaking the record held by Amarjit Kaypee. However,this record was later broken by Wasim Jaffer. Despite his success at domestic level, he was never selected for the Indian national team.
Muzumdar attended Sharadashram Vidyamandir School, where he was a schoolmate of future cricketing star Sachin Tendulkar. Like Tendulkar, he was coached by Ramakant Achrekar. When Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli shared in a then-record unbroken 664-run partnership for their school in a Harris Shield match, he was on the same team and was due to bat next.
On his first-class debut for Bombay, he scored 260 against Haryana at Faridabad in a Ranji Trophy match in the 1993–94 season. This was a record for any player on their debut in first-class cricket.
Muzumdar was named as the vice-captain of the Indian U-19 cricket team for their tour of England in 1994. He was regarded as one of the country's finest prospects and was labelled the "new Tendulkar". He also played for the India A side in the 1994–95 season alongside Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly.
However, despite a first-class career average of over 50, he slowly began to disappear from the plans of the national team selectors. While his contemporaries Tendulkar, Dravid and Ganguly went on to have long and successful international careers, he was never selected for the full India national cricket team in either Tests or ODIs.
Muzumdar considered quitting the game in 2002, but since then he has continued to serve the Mumbai cricket team with distinction. In the 2006–07 season, he was appointed captain and led the team to victory in the Ranji Trophy. In January 2007, he became the highest-ever run-scorer in the Ranji Trophy for Mumbai beating the record set by Ashok Mankad.
In September 2009, Amol moved to Assam after he was not selected in the Mumbai squad for the Mushtaq Ali T20 trophy. With this he followed in the footsteps of his Mumbai teammate, Sairaj Bahutule.
In October 2012 he signed with Andhra Pradesh for two years. Midway through the 2013–14 Ranji Trophy he made himself unavailable for the season and instead decided to mentor Andhra Youngsters.
