Profile

Wisden obituary
Bert Strudwick, who died suddenly on February 14, a few days after his 90th birthday, held the world record for most dismissals in a career by a wicketkeeper. One of the greatest and assuredly one of the most popular players of his time, he helped to get rid of 1,493 batsmen, 71 of them in Test matches, and he established another world record which still stands by holding 1,235 catches. His stumpings numbered 258. He set up a third record in 1903 when taking 71 catches and bringing off 20 stumpings, but Fred Huish, of Kent, surpassed this eight years later.
