Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket


Bill

He was castigated by the most influential voice in his country's cricket, for having had a rough night on the tiles during a Test at Manchester.
As a result, he was excluded from the team for the next series which was an important one. His team lost that series badly.

Twelve years before all this, this very cricketer scored 21 runs in 5 innings in another famous series, in spite of remaining pretty abstemious.
He had one last opportunity in that series and, having failed miserably, he decided to throw discretion to the winds and went into bat with a serious hangover.
He scored a double-century ( also his highest Test score).
