Profile

Thomas White played for Surrey between 1773 and 1778, but his lasting contribution to cricket came in 1771. Playing for Chertsey against Hambleon at Laleham Burway, White used a bat so wide that it completely obscured the stumps. The Hambledon players not unreasonably objected and a formal protest was made by Thomas Brett, as Hambledon's opening bowler; this was signed by himself, his captain Richard Nyren and master batsman John Small. The incident brought about a change in the Laws of Cricket wherein the maximum width of the bat was set at four-and-a-quarter inches.
