Though the images in the stamp resemble some players, they have been intentionally distorted so that the person cannot be identified. It is a policy of India Post that no "living person" can be depicted on postage stamps. That is the reason why QE does not feature on any modern post-independence stamps, even though we are a part of the Commonwealth.
But, it is a good guessing game to identify the players ......
Some clues can be had from the teams participating in tournament.

Maybe some board members can link the players to the images.
As for the sheet singles, we are yet to receive them at our bureau. I will send you a set when available.
The stamps on the FDC have been cut out from the mini sheet - that was the only format they were available at the time of release. The mini sheet itself is HUGE - would need an A4 size envelope to fix it.vicaf60 wrote:Does it mean that the stamps were issued in regular sheets, too? I failed to find pictures of pairs or sheets (their parts) of these in this format. Or, was the mini sheet the only format used for the issue? Then, why different print runs?
