    W.H. Cooper

    Has anyone else here noticed that most enchanting reference on Cricket Archive to William Cooper's being a "Leg-break and googly" bowler? (For the record, he played his last first-class game as far back into antediluvian yore as 1886/87, long before Bernard Bosanquet's nefarious quadruple-bouncer four-flushed Sam Coe.)

    Maybe they know something we don't? The scoop you have been looking for?
    You know it makes sense.

    I've done a little reconnoitring, and, although I can't confirm for certain that Cooper discovered the googly, I've come by the quite startling revelation that it was he who pioneered leg-theory. I really should let David Frith in on that.

    Come now! You know full well that I've made at least one big find.
