Top Cricket Bowlers of all Time
Harold Larwoods partner in crime in the Bodyline series, the Nottinghamshire left arm paceman was not as quick as his county team mate, but could produce steep, disconcerting bounce. He took 15 wickets in four Tests in that series, missing the fourth because of injury. On the 1936 37 trip, when captain Gubby Allen insisted Bodyline was not deployed, Voce took six for 41 and four for 16 in the first Test at Brisbane. In the next Test at Sydney his spell of three for one in four balls including the wicket of Don Bradman helped reduce Australia to 80 all out. He took four for 10 and three for 66 in the match. He took 41 Ashes wickets at 27.51 each in 11 Ashes Tests all in Australia.
