Jack White didn't turn it much for a left-arm spin bowler, instead relying on accuracy and variations of pace. He served England well between the reigns of Wilfred Rhodes and Hedley Verity, playing 14 of his 15 Tests after the age of 37. His finest hour came in the steaming heat of Adelaide in 1928-29, when his match figures were 124.5-37-256-13 in England's 12-run victory. In the entire series he conceded only 760 runs from 406.4 overs, taking 25 wickets. He was no slouch with the bat either, scoring six first-class hundreds and twice achieving the double. He captained Somerset for five seasons, and was president in 1960. He was also a Test selector between 1929 and 1930. His nickname owed much to his ruddy complexion - and the fact he was a farmer!
