Cricket Anecdotes


Hedley Verity took 10 for 10 in a first-class match. It was the perfect analysis.


"Verily, virile, Verity.
With wonderful skill and dexterity
In a very few overs
He made Notts the rovers
A record to hand to posterity."

J.B. Fecknall published this poem in the Nottingham Evening News, four days after Hedley Verity took 10 for 10.
