    Grovel!

    David Tossell, who wrote the book Grovel!, a book on West Indies' tour of England in 1976, recalls the closing minutes of day three of the Old Trafford test.

    The passages make for enthralling reading. I can't seem to find the book on Indian e-commerce sites. Maybe I'll just need to go to a real shop to see if it is available.
    When Close and Edrich returned to the pavilion, teammates gawped at them as they might war colleagues showing up back at base after being presumed dead. It was Edrich who broke the silence by looking at the scoreboard and breaking into manic giggling. "Do you know what your score is, Closey?" he said. "One. We’ve been out there for 80 minutes and gone through all that for one."

    Holding said: "Clive said, 'Gentlemen, those two batsmen will be there again on Monday morning. Bowl up to a length and get them out. There is no point hitting them all over the body if they are still there.'"
    I'd love to see a similar session of play in test cricket now. Actually, West Indies would probably give anything right now to be in any sort of position to make an impact.
