I don't think I ever worked harder at any match during my career to get runs as I did then, nor did I ever have to face in one game such consistently fast bowlers as the Australian pair, Gregory and McDonald.

Did you know about Frank Woolley?

Frank Edward Woolley (27 May 1887 Tonbridge Kent – 18 October 1978 Chester Nova Scotia Canada) was an English cricketer one of the finest all-rounders the game has seen. He played under fourteen different captains for England a record in Test cricket. In the first over of his innings perhaps there had been an exquisite off-drive followed by a perfect cut then an effortless leg-glide.

He is also the only non-wicket-keeper to have held more than 1000 catches. In a career lasting more than thirty years he scored more first-class runs than anyone but Sir Jack Hobbs and took over 2000 wickets at an average of under 20.
