Someone set this to my email:

The section Duleep_Singh#Another_identity is completely wrong. This Duleep Singh had nothing to do with cricket and it is highly unlikely that his father Maharaja Ranjit Singh had even heard about the game.
The person after whom the trophy is named is Duleepsinhji, an Indian prince who represented England in cricket. The "like his father" is a reference to Kumar Sri Ranjitsinhji, uncle of Duleep and one of the greatest players of the game.

In response to this forum post, and knowing nothing about this subject myself, I have given the poster an assumption of good faith by removing the section here for review. Stephen Ewen 03:00, 7 February 2008 (CST)

Another identity

He was also a well known cricketer like his father. In India, the annual cricket competition between the various zones is held by his name (Duleep Trophy).
