Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......

I look forward to seeing your batting line-up.
I don't suppose it will be too stellar, but there are plenty of decent batters and keepers around is my reasoning, and the old you need to take 20 wickets etc etc mantra
