Gerald Bond was an attacking right-hand batsman whose one Test - against England at Johannesburg in 1938-39 - was a disappointment (he scored 0 and took 0 for 16). His moment of glory came when he scored 170 - his only first-class hundred - for Western Province when they amassed 664 for 6 against Natal at Durban in 1936-37.
Also: the fastest Indian to 50 wickets, and Yasir Shah's unwanted "double-hundred"
