A great leader of men. When he became Sussex captain they went from nowhere to missing the 1953 championship by a whisker; and next year he was captain of England at 25.

He had little natural talent but bags of character - a good advertisement for the muscular Christianity ethos and the view that sport breeds (rather than reveals) character.

A great example of real-world integrated Christianity.
