    I was going to try and find the story by Jack Fingleton about TB where the slow Bailey took up the challenge and hit a couple of sixes because JF had offered money but I can't remember which book it is in

    Anyway I think JF managed to avoid paying
    You know it makes sense.

    RIP. A terrible way for a life to end.

    I love reading the articles on Bailey in the 40's and 50's describing his stonewalling efforts to save games.

    Pretty good cricinfo interview with him from last month:

    Such a horrible way to go.

    In the link in GF's post Trevor himself mentions what might be the incident:

    In Brisbane, in 1954-55, I stepped in with England on 25 for 4, chasing Australia's 601. I stonewalled for 38 in 160 minutes. That evening I came to know that an Australian businessman had placed a $100 bet on the first Englishman to clear the fence. The next morning I duly hit Ian Johnson for only the second six of my Test career, and immediately returned to my shell. I spent the money throwing a party at the hotel, which somewhat lessened the pain of a heavy defeat.

    Fingleton not named, but whoever the "Australian businessman" was he seems to have paid up his dues.
