Test statistics

Col Hoy umpired nine Tests in Australia in the 1950s and 1960s, including the most famous of them. After Joe Solomon hit the stumps at Brisbane in 1960-61, Hoy gave Ian Meckiff run out to record the first tie in Test history. West Indian captain Frank Worrell said he would be happy to have the same umpires - Hoy and Colin Egar - again; and he did, in all five Tests. However, Hoy retired from umpiring after that season and concentrated on business and playing grade cricket in Brisbane. He made a brief comeback as an umpire during World Series Cricket.
