Test statistics

Betty Wilson was one of women cricket's greatest players, and her tag as the female Bradman is not untoward. As a child she was a talented, natural athlete who could "run like a hare". A right-hand bat, offspinner and superb close fielder, she learned her game by playing against a lamp post in the street and hitting a ball enclosed in one of her mother's stocking suspended from a clothes line.
