Kenneth Owen Hunter, a well-known figure in Old Wykehamist cricket circles, died at his London home on March 25 at the age of 78. He was born on July 7, 1881,
and during his two years in the Winchester XI (1899-1900) he took 82 wickets, his 47 wickets in the former year putting him at the head of the averages. On going
up to New College, Oxford, he played in the trial matches of 1901, and though he did not gain a place in the University side, he gained the rare distinction of a Harlequin cap for cricket and a trial cap for rowing. For more than 20 years he was secretary of the Old Wykehamist Cricket Club and appeared in one of their fixtures at the age of 65. His two brothers, R. C. and H. M. Hunter, also played for Winchester.
Dale Steyn on relationships, his beard, how growing up in the bush shaped him, and what attracted him to fast bowling
Do fast bowlers need verbal fisticuffs to generate aggression? Does sending a nightwatchman in always make sense? Is surpassing 100mph even possible?
Attacking play - particularly bowling - has been the team's hallmark down the decades, but not anymore it would seem
The boy from Burnley with magic in his wrist has surpassed all before him - with luck we will be able to enjoy his skill and application for a few more years yet
Azhar Ali's early steps in captaincy will be analysed extensively but he needs time to step out of the large shadows of Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi
For New Zealand's wild child, there is probably no better place than county cricket right now
His current game is extremely premeditated, so as to delay taking risks, and it robs the innings of all natural flow
