RIP, John Warr

Cricinfo is woefully inadequate when it comes to discussing some cricketers.

Here is a delightful obit of John Warr who died on 9th May.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2 ... -obituary/

Compare this with cricinfo's obit.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/england/con ... 11813.html

Clearly they are dealing with a different target readership.

The Telegraph is still read by many oldtimers who have interest in details of a yesteryear cricketer's life.

Cricinfo, on the other hand, .....

I like his quip to Trueman, "you and I have 308 test wickets between us"

I found on Telegraph.uk but
Raja more Quick than his own Nehra
Azheruddin hits 439 in his First 5 Test innings vs Attapatu, who scored ONE run in his first 6 test innings.
