    Tony Lock

    Tony Lock

    Woe betide anyone who reminded Tony Lock after 1956 that he was the man who "got the other one" when Jim Laker took his 19-90. In this feature Martin tells the story of a sometimes fiery character who contributed to many controversial moments over his long career

    Another gem, fred.

    I was unaware of the *** charges. Very sad postscript.

    He was a man quick to anger, quick to forgive. He was plain-speaking with few inhibitions, sometimes apt to be brusque in the attempt to conceal his innate shyness.
    A wonderful couple of lines by Arlott that underscores one of cricket's greatest characters. Thanks Fred.

    Here is some footage of Lock bowling in 1958/59 (see 4 minute mark) during a Neil Harvey ton at the MCG. Obviously pre-correction!
