Profile

Bert Wensley rendered excellent service to Sussex as a professional allrounder from 1922 to 1936. In that time he took with medium-pace bowling 1,135 wickets for 26.42 runs each and hit 10,735 runs, average 20.40. He achieved the cricketers' double in 1929 when scoring 1,057 runs and dismissing 113 batsmen. In each of four other years he took 100 wickets and against Middlesex at Lord's in 1935 he performed the hat-trick. The best bowling analysis of his career was nine Otago wickets for 36 runs at Auckland in 1929-30. In 1925 at Hove, he and M. W. Tate bowed unchanged through both Glamorgan innings. How economical Bert Wensley's bowling could be was illustrated by his figures against Derbyshire at Chesterfield in 1928: 32 overs, 20 maidens, 21 runs, 0 wicket.
