TEAMS

Basil Grieve's two Test appearances - both made during Major Warton's tour in 1888-89 - make up his entire first-class career. He was not a slouch, and had been a medium-paced opening bowler for Harrow and MCC. A wine merchant by trade, he died in 1917 of natural causes. Such was his impact on the cricket world, Wisden carried a three-line obituary which failed to mention his appearances for England.
