TEAMS

Wisden described Ted Arnold in his obituary as "an allround cricketer of sterling merit". He was three times part of England teams that won Test series, notably that of Warner's 1903-4 Ashes tour. His debut on that tour was impressive - he removed the illustrious opening pair of Duff and Trumper with 9 on the board, and played an important role in England's win in the crucial fourth Test. His four first-innings wickets, and second-innings dismissal of Trumper more than compensated for his pair of ducks. More than any other player, Arnold was responsible for the elevation of Worcestershire to first-class status. His allround ability (18 first-class centuries, and close to 1000 county wickets) enabled his adopted county to take on any opponent.

Arnold bowled at medium pace or faster, varying his pace well, and moving the ball off the wicket. He used all his considerable height with an upright delivery, developing lift, particularly on rain-affected wickets where his bowling was particularly effective. He was one of the early exponents of swing bowling, following the example of Hirst, with an excellent away-swinger. He had a solid defence, and a range of powerful strokes, although his batting was not seen at its best in Tests. He usually fielded in the slips, where he had a safe pair of hands.
