Question 17

September 18, 2009

X was the first player to ever use an aluminium bat. He used it during a 1979 test match against England. The English captain Mike Brearley complained to the umpires that the bat was damaging the ball and they had an animated discussion with X for almost 10 minutes after which X threw the “offending lump of metal fully 40 yards towards the pavilion”, and grudgingly took a wooden bat. Who is X?
