A wicketkeeper with few pretensions with the bat, Tony Kamm was in the Charterhouse XI, captaining them in 1951, and also played for Southern Schools at Lord's. In 1949, batting at No. 9, he made 56 and 28 as the Public Schools XI held out for a draw against Combined Services. He played for Middlesex 2nd XI while still at school and in 1952 made his Championship debut in the absence of Leslie Compton. He held two good catches but The Times remarked on his uncertainty in dealing with Denis Compton's chinamen. Kamm was kept out of the Oxford side by Whitcome and then Walshe, although he did force his way into the side in 1954 winning his only Blue. He also played hockey and fives for Oxford, and for many years played for the National Book League - his career was in publishing - in their annual match against The Authors. He also wrote a number of books and specialised in children's literature.
Only 15 times in Test history has a player achieved the double of 300 runs and 20 wickets in a Test series. Going on current form, Bhuvneshwar could well be the 16th
