    He looked pretty sharp didn't he? It is also good to learn new things. That video showed me that I have been mispronouncing Alf Gover's name for years

    I liked that. Great footage of Wes Hall. Really paved the way for the quartet IMO.

    I see cricinfo lists Bedser as medium-fast. That surprised me. Growing up, everything I read put him firmly in the medium camp. - nothing more. I don't think anyone put him much quicker than Gooch or Butcher.

    On that note. Rob, do you have many of Gooch's Test wickets on vid? I'd love to see a compilation.

    So how did he take over 200 test wickets?

    Combination of reasons. 1. Being very good. 2. The wickets suited him. 3. The late 40s and early 50s was, not to be rude, 'soft cricket'

    By being a good bowler, simple as that, imo. I think it is a mistake to think that the modern bowlers who bowl 70mph (Collingwood, Ganguly, Pollard etc) are the most skilled at doing so, most are part-timers. If you look at Chaminda Vaas at the end of his career, he bowled spells at approximately 70mph in Test cricket and batsmen genuinely struggled.

    I think it was a lower standard of cricket back then, but I also think Bedser would have made a fair few (at the very least) Test batsmen struggle if he'd played these days.
