Never bats in another Test

Percy Holmes made his debut for England in 1921.

Australia skittled them out for 112. Holmes top scored with 30 and looked the best of the lot.

But chief selector Harry Foster was not impressed.
"So long as I have influence in choosing England that man never bats in another Test."

 

Holmes' international career never took off.
