Wisden, on John Murray

Postby raja » Sat Apr 13, 2019 6:23 am

I quite enjoyed reading this.

It's fascinating to read of cricket from the years gone by, especially from before 1989.

England's keepers from the late 50s (say, after Godfrey Evans) to the late 60s.
Roy Swetman, Geoff Millman, Alan Smith, Jim Parks, John Murray....and Alan Knott.

The 1970s were dominated by Knott, though Bob Taylor was considered just as good, probably even better and got his chance again after Knott joined Packer. There was Roger Tolchard briefly (decent batsman, but not a great keeper) - fond memories of him and Tony Greig at the Eden Gardens, 1976-77. :-)
