Herbert Gamlin played for Somerset three times a professional and, as his statistics show, made almost no impression, taking two wickets and scoring 7 runs in six innings, four of which were ducks. His only claim to fame was that he was the bowler who finally dismissed Archie MacLaren for 424 at Taunton, at the time the highest score by an Englishman in first-class cricket.
His rapid improvement with the ball has been integral to England coming from behind to lead the series - but that is just one area where Moeen Ali continues to impress
Why does the man who is possibly England's greatest fast bowler occasionally turn into Mr Hyde on the field?
