Two greats on a bad wicket

"The wicket's a bad 'un.", said the umpire.
After overnight rain.


But he was amazed to see one of the opening batsmen puffing a pipe as if they were to go and bat in a festival match.
The other was busy brushing his black hair.

Jack Hobbs and Herbert Sutcliffe.


On a horrendous pitch, Hobbs scored 100. Sutcliffe scored 161.

And helped England win the Ashes in 1926.

Such calmness!
Much greatness!
