Profile

Wisden obituary
Jack Moroney came late to big cricket because of the Second World War, and failed to secure the regular Test place many believed he deserved. His fielding was heavy-footed, and his reputation for dour batting was not helped by an odd reluctance to use his power, sparking the observation by RS Whitington that he batted `like a purposeless porpoise'. Moroney grumbled that maintaining discipline as a school-master was difficult enough, without irreverent pupils being offered such a tag for their teacher.
