1938 - Hardstaff and Verity share a bat


How different cricket was 70 years ago. Joe Hardstaff breaks his bat during England's mammoth innings at the Oval, so simply swaps with the man at the other end, Hedley Verity.

Hardstaff wasn't put off - he scored 169 not out in England's total of 903 for six declared.
