Profile

Andrew Sandham, who died on April 20, at the age of 91, stoically accepted second billing throughout his long career to his incomparable opening partner, Jack Hobbs. Sixty-six times they posted a three-figures stand, including the towering 428 against Oxford University in 1926: yet the spotlight remained fixed to Hobbs, even when he failed and Sandham made runs.
