Bob Beveridge was a slow left-arm bowler who played 41 times for the weak Middlesex team of the early 1930s. In his third match, at Leicester, he took 6 for 66, but after that achieved little. He finished the season with 30 wickets at 24.50 but took only 11 wickets for 615 in the next three seasons. He went to coach in Cairo before emigrating to New Zealand, and was groundsman at Eden Park in the 1960s and 1970s.
Only 15 times in Test history has a player achieved the double of 300 runs and 20 wickets in a Test series. Going on current form, Bhuvneshwar could well be the 16th
