The Cricket Collection of Robert Appleyard, Yorkshire & England 1950-1958. Part One

Bob Appleyard's brief first-class career which did not start until he was 27. An off spinner who bowled at close to medium pace, with a deceptive dipping flight, and great accuracy, he was devastating on a wet wicket, and economical on batsman's pitches. His Yorkshire debut came in 1950 when he played in three matches and took 11 wickets but there was little indication of what was to happen the following season when he took 200 wickets. He took 154 wickets in 1954 and received an England call-up. He took 5 for 51 on debut, and 31 wickets at 17.87 in his nine Tests. A change in the lbw law and a chronic shoulder injury drastically reduced his effectiveness, and he quit in 1958, after only five full seasons. For Yorkshire he took 708 wickets at an average of 15.48 and a best of 8-76

Each book contains a library bookplate signed by Appleyard.
