Profile

Ross Stanford was a schoolboy prodigy who made 416 at the age of 14. But his first-class career seemed to be over before it ever began when he was run-out for 0 on his debut for South Australia four years later in 1936-37. "He came in to bat with Don Bradman on his way to a record 369," a team-mate recalled. "He was so nervous he ran himself out without facing a ball." He was dropped and did not appear again before WW2.
