"To some people cricket is a circus show upon which they may or may not find it worthwhile to spend sixpence; to others a
physical fine art full of plot, interest and enlivened by
difficulties; to others, in some sort, it is a cult and a philosophy."
Our debutant philosopher-cricketer. As a cricketer CB Fry captained both Sussex and England. A gifted footballer too, he played professionally for Southampton and Portsmouth, making his England debut in 1901. For a time he was also holder of the world record for the long jump. A superbly gifted cricket writer and academic off the pitch CB politically managed to combine standing unsuccessfully for Parliament as a Liberal Party candidate with the bizarre idea ideas that if Germany could be persuaded to play England at test cricket WW2 might be avoided . Available in sizes small (36inch chest/90cms) medium (40inch/100cms) and large (44inch/110cms).
