(1928-1948) Made 12 Test double-centuries and went over 300 twice. He held the record highest score both for Tests (334) and first-class cricket (452*). His 29 Test centuries stood as the world record for many years, and he is the only man to score 100 first-class centuries without appearing in county cricket. His Test batting average was 99.94. He was dismissed for a duck by Eric Hollies in his final Test innings in 1948 when he needed just four to maintain his career average over 100.
