” The greatest stage manager in the world cricket “. That was how Walter Robins, chairman of the England selectors, described Frank Worrrell, captain of the West Indies, at the end of the memorable Engish summer of 1963. It was no understatement. The West Indies brought Australia to a standstill when at Brisbane they fought out the greatest Test Match ever played. It ended in a tie. When they left for home 100,000 people lined the streets of Melbourne to cheer them on their way. AUTHOUR – IAN WOOLDRIDGE.
