Harold Larwood (1904-1995)
Nottinghamshire and England
Larwood's name is inextricably linked with the "Bodyline" tour to Australia.
However, the association devalues the Englishman's standing as a Test bowler of the highest quality.
What is more, it destroyed his career.
He made his county debut in 1924, an international bow coming two years with six wickets against Australia.
His searing pace made him a threat in all conditions but although he enjoyed spells of great success, he also suffered, most notably at Australian hands in 1930.
The bowler got his revenge two years on when Douglas Jardine saw the perfect intimidatory weapon for the strategy of fast leg-side bowling in Larwood.
He took 33 wickets in the series but injuries to Bill Woodfull and Bertie Oldfield from short-pitched deliveries in Adelaide inflamed the public and authorities alike.
On his return to England, Larwood was told to sign a letter of apology. The scapegoat refused and never played another Test.
