Profile

Cricket came to Walter John Scholes very early - the Oxford Companion of Australian Cricketers calls him "a cricket addict from the age of nine." It's not surprising then, that the short, thickset allrounder from East Brunswick, Melbourne had a brilliant run in schools cricket. He led the Victorian under-15 team to victory in the Sydney carnival, while chalking up two centuries. He topped that off by scoring 100 runs and picking up 10 wickets in a game - becoming the only schoolboy ever, in Australian cricket, to achieve the feat.
