Story Time 36 – Dr Quiney, Medicine Woman
Our weekly walk through cricket history via your listener quiz challenges. Today: Rob Quiney, healer of seagulls, was there anything he couldn't do? How are 229 and 257 the first and second record holders in two completely different categories? What kind of player took completism to unrivalled levels? Plenty of Tony Greig, for some reason, and Percy Holmes, for others. The most fun you can have at the Brabourne Stadium for 17 days. And why, why, how, do some teams possibly get first-class status? Plus some very important Winnie news off the top.
