Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket


DCS Compton

July 8th 1948.
Old Trafford.
The Lindwall bouncer is on target. The batsman misses the hook. He leaves the field bleeding, gets the eyebrow stitched and plastered. 
He goes back out and gets greeted by another bouncer. But he handles this one in a better way.
At the end he has 145 not out to his name.

Denis Compton, ladies and gentlemen!
