Profile

January 1908. Adelaide shimmering in the heat, the temperature at the wicket around 150°F. Australia, trailing England on the first innings by 78 runs, were 179 for 6, a mere 101 runs ahead, when 28-year-old Roger Hartigan made his way to the crease. A few minutes later O'Connor was out, and in came Clem Hill, so sick with 'flu that there had been doubts that he would bat even this low in the order. Just over four hours' play later, on the following morning, Hartigan was caught at point by the bespectacled English substitute Dick Young for 116, and the stand was worth 243 - at that time the highest for any wicket in Test cricket, and to this day the highest for the eighth wicket in any Test match apart from the 246 put on by Les Ames and Gubby Allen for England against New Zealand in 1931.
