Bryan Davis was an opening batsman of tremendous ability who played four Tests against Australia in 1964-65. He opened in three of them, with his best performance coming in his first match, in front of his home crowd at Port-of-Spain, when he made 54 and 58, adding 116 and 91 for the first wicket with Conrad Hunte. Despite this, and 68 at Bridgetown, he wasn't picked again, although he did tour India in 1966-67 without playing in any of the Tests. He won selection for that trip largely thanks to him carrying his bat for 188 for North against South Trinidad. A useful legspinner, he played two seasons for Glamorgan in 1969 (when they won the Championship) and 1970, passing 1000 runs on both occasions.
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
