It should be none other Ranjit sinh ji (who was born in India and played for England) - year 1897.
First one to honored by Wisden, who also played for India is Nawad of Pataudi Sr., but he was honored when he was playing for England. (year 1932)
CK Nayudu should be the first Indian cricketer to be honored by Wisden, and he was the first cricketer to receive Padma Bhushan.(Year - 1933).
