Bob Appleyard. Cricket scores and analyses 1948-1952. An unusual collection of detailed and comprehensive handwritten analyses of players' performances including methods of dismissal, types of shot played against different bowling styles, wagon wheels etc. The details, by an unknown compiler, are broken down by county and player covering 1948-1952, and also statistics of the performances of players in the 1953 Ashes series, including typed instructions on how to interpret the data. It appears that the papers were sent to Appleyard in 1952 while he was convalescing from tuberculosis in hospital during a long illness that saw him play only one game in 1952 and none in 1953. An incomplete handwritten letter to Appleyard, apparently written by the compiler in 1953, gives intriguing personal views of the Australian tourists, including an encounter on the train as they were travelling to Bristol for the tour match against Gloucestershire, 'a familiar voice in the dusk beside me said "Hallo Lorna[?]. How are you?" & there was Lindwall... when we parted & I said, naturally, "Well, good luck to you tomorrow" Ray replied that he didn't want any luck at all. All he (and the others) wanted was for Lindsay [Hassett] to win the toss so that they could spend the day with their feet up'. Relating to the statistics [s]he writes 'Please forgive my lateness in sending the stuff along. The rest will follow as & when ready, in the hope that staleness will not affect the validity of the conclusions to be drawn by the facts. Regarding Appleyard's illness, the correspondent writes, 'Your absence has thrown the whole side out of gear... Your return could make them once more into the fine side they could & should be, so get better soon'. After recovering, Appleyard made a remarkable return to the Yorkshire side for the 1954 season finishing second in the bowling averages with 154 wickets at an average of 14.42, presumably armed with the information gleaned regarding opposition batsmen's weaknesses!

The saga of the England captaincy continued as a subject of debate through 1973. Tony Lewis had retired as captain due to injury and finally Mike Denness was appointed M.C.C. captain for the tour of the West Indies in 1974.

For the first time in several years, the captaincy remained unchanged for successive major tours. The tour selection was criticised, too many fast bowlers and not enough batsman, the selection of Denness as captain and the non selection of Jon Snow. In addition Boycott withdrew stating he was not fit enough mentally to return to Test cricket. Not good omens for the tour and it proved to be the case. England were destroyed by Lillee and Thomson and lost the series 4-0 with one Test drawn. Denness stood down from the captaincy and from playing due to lack of form just prior to the start of the fourth Test and John Edrich took over for this match. Denness returned to the captaincy in the firth Test which was lost but against all the odds in the sixth Test, England beat Australia by an innings and four runs with Denness scoring 188.
