Malcolm Robert Jardine gained two great honours in the cricket world. In 1892, by scoring 140 and 39 against Cambridge at Lord's, he created an individual record for the highest aggregate in a University match; and his son, D. R. Jardine, captained England during the Australian tour of 1932-33 when The Ashes were recovered in the series of five matches made memorable by the Bodyline description of specially fast bowling, introduced with leg-side fieldsmen in a manner since copied by Australian teams without objection by England or adverse criticism. Malcom Jardine began cricket at Fettes, and when captain in 1888 he went ahead of all the other boys by averaging 77 with the bat and taking 24 wickets at 6.3 each.
