Keeping Trueman on 99 Test wickets

In the final innings of the 1958-59 Ashes series, Trueman reminded Australian opening batsman Colin McDonald: " Ah think ah should tell thee ah'm on 99 Test wickets."
McDonald swiftly replied: "Well, Fred, I am on 468 runs for the series, so I'd like my 500th. And, anyway, you're a good enough bowler to get me out without me having to give it to you. Now piss off."


Trueman took his 100th wicket in New Zealand.
