Profile

Left-armer Frederick "Nutty" Martin played only two Tests but will have taken some consolation from finishing with a bowling average of 10.07. He grabbed 12 for 102 on debut against Australia at The Oval in 1890 -- the best figures by a debutant until Bob Massie destroyed England with 16 for 137 in 1972 - but for some reason he did not play in another Ashes Test. He continued to excel for Kent, taking 1317 first-class wickets at the startling average of 17.38. And he took ten wickets in a match on 23 occasions.
