Hugh Tryon Bartlett, one of the hardest-hitting of English left-handers, collapsed and died during the Sunday League match at Hove on June 26. He was 73, and it was only a couple of months short of 50 years since he hammered a 57-minute century for Sussex on that same ground against the 1938 Australians, an innings (157 in two hours, with six sixes and 18 fours) which won him the Lawrence Trophy for the fastest century of the summer. It provided a spectacular contrast for the tourists, who had just had to field out to Hutton's 131/4 -hour 364 at The Oval.
