Great stuff lads, one of my all time favourite cricket stories:cool:

Reading a bio on Mead atm, and read quite a good one on his Lordship, always upset me the incident with Bradman in 1930:dry:

A ? as slipped into the text:ph34r:


International Debutant
That's interesting! ..... As for test cricket, I won't be surprised if it is Ind's comeback against Aus in Kolkatta, when Laxman and Dravid turned things around for India


International Vice-Captain
Pak Vs. NZ..........................great comeback by Amir and Ajmal..............but we lost the game lol


International Captain
bradman's first series as a skipper must surely be one of the greatest comebacks ever.


International Regular
Hey that's an excellent little bit of reading. Would love to be a part of something like that wouldn't you??


Cricket Web: All-Time Legend
There are accounts of the 36/37 tour by English journalists William Pollock and Bruce Harris and also, for the only time for a series in Australia by Neville Cardus, who of course was a journalist too, but a rather special one - no account by a player though - nor, oddly, by an Aussie

Well, but for Kamran Akmal in Karachi 2006 Pakistan might well have done almost the same. They were 0-3 to Irfan's hat-trick at the end of the first over, and 36-6 at the end of 10 overs (or something like that). They ended up with 230 odd (due to Akmal's century mostly).
2nd innings, they declared on 599-6.
