Profile

Len Maddocks will be remembered forever as the man Jim Laker trapped leg-before to complete his famous ten-for at Old Trafford in 1956, yet apart from this inauspicious place in cricket history, Maddocks was a wicketkeeper of distinction in his own right, and after retirement became a prominent figure in the administration of Australian cricket. He was small and slight, and played his cricket with a smile on his face.
