Bedser, knighted in 1997, passed away on Sunday evening at a hospital in Woking after falling ill last month.

 

He took 236 wickets for England in 51 Test matches in a 10-year period before serving a record 23 years as a selector and managing two overseas tours.

I remember seeing A V Bedser in the first first class match I ever saw way back in 1954.

 

The last time I saw him was at the Potters Heron when he was a guest speaker at a Hursley Park CC Dinner.

 

A Great Bowler and a link back to my first cricketing memories of Hutton Compton Evans Bedser May Bailey Laker etc

 

 

RIP Sir Alec Great Surrey and England Cricketer and Gentleman
