Adelaide Mail (Newspaper) - January 21, 1933, Adelaide, South Australia National Library of Australia Haig the father of a scotch whiskies established 1627 agents Cropton it co. 148 Flinders treet Adelaide. Did Board ban leg theory tactics at Ballarat stated note was sent to Captain Jardine Speaks out in defence of Larwood ? Woodfull May retire Melbourne saturday. A letter from the Board of control forbidding leg theory Bowling against the englishmen was read to the Ballarat players before they took the Field today it was re ported late tonight. It is stated that the Board s prohibition was decisively worded and that the Captain h. Rogerson obeyed the instruction. Jardine spoke in defence of Larwood and body line Bowling at the official luncheon today. I ask you to con Sider Only one question he said. How Many times has Larwood hit the wicket in Melbourne today it was hinted that the australian test Captain w. M. Woodfull might not play in the re main tests. It is stated that he would be glad to retire from the game. Several balls 6ent Down by the Balli rat bowlers were on the leg aide apparently through Lack of control and Suteliffe and Verity were struck. It was Clear that the englishmen did not relish them. ? when it was reported in Ballarat to Day that the players had a letter read to them from the Board of control forbidding the use of let theory Bowling the Captain denied it. He said that it had been left to his discretion and he bad decided not to use it. Late tonight however it was reported in Melbourne that the Board had issued a prohibition of this Type of bowline in letter to the players. When spoken to tonight the Secretary of the Board of control or. W. H. Jeanes said that he had no information to give on the subject. I cannot Dis cuts the matter he said when pressed to state whether the communication had been forwarded by the Board. Although the two Ballarat. Fast bowlers. Alexander and stalker hurled several balk Down on the leg Side apparently through Lack of control there we no packed leg Field. No brute Force the acting mayor of Ballarat or. J. Harrison when speaking at the official luncheon today Baid be was gratified that Woodfull had not adopted leg theory. That is. Your method he said turning to Jardine. I Hope Australia will never retaliate. Australians Are admirers of skill. We should not like brute Force drought in to supplant it he said that it would in a bad thing for Cricket it the leg theory was t not suppressed. You have considered Only one. Side of the question said Jardine in reply. It is not my place to debate it but 1 believe that it has been said that a cricketer is easy Money and that you cannot libel him. I want to ask Only one question of Yon How Many times has Lar Wood hit the wicket it is a fairly familiar cry of the australian bar Raeker to bowl at the wicket i think Yon might consider Larwood s record in that respect Jardine s Contention that. Larwood Rene rally bowled at the wicket is not without truth but it Only needs a few High bumpers in Between to injure or Discon Cert a batsman. Larwood s record Larwood in the first three tests has bowled 10 batsmen obtained one wicket . Had 10 caught off his Bowling and caused one to retire injured. In almost every Case where a Man was clean bowled however the leg theory had previously been adopted. In Oldfield s Case he admits having lost eight of the Ball that struck him. In Sydney today he said previously i had been ducking to Dodge Larwood s fliers and i have no doubt that my Knock was due indirectly to leg Field tactics quite a few of those Larwood clean bowled could support that statement in then own cases. The average australian Follower of the Fame decries Larwood s adoption of these Jnet hods because they Realise that he is far too Good to be compelled to stoop to such tactics to secure his Wickete. Fingleton s blows in addition to the blow which Oldfield received on the head and which broke a Bone in the forehead Woodfull waa struck Over the heart by a bumper in the Ade Laide test and then bad the leg Field placed for him while still in great pain. Ponsford and Richardson were bruised on the thigh. In the earlier tests Fingleton received 11 severe body blows. Mccabe and Pons Ford were knocked about by bumpers and in Melbourne Woodfull was reduced to a state of collapse by the battering he received. Years ago. At a match at lords George Summers of Notts died As a result of a blow from a fast hamper which struck him on the Temple. The feeling is growing in Melbourne Cricket circles that Australia will not eee much More of Woodfull its test Cap Tain in big Cricket. People who prof is to know his intentions hint that he May not be seen in the remaining tests of the season. Woodfull silent Woodfull himself in keeping his own counsel but it is known that he is thoroughly distrusted with what has happened in the tests so far and would be glad to get out of it All his protest to the. Co manager of the English team or. P. F. Warner about body line Bowling contained a phrase which supports the View that he May re tire very soon. If they the tactics of the English men Are persevered with he in re ported to have said it might be better if i did not play the game this remark coupled with other re Marks that he is known to have made recently indicates How he Feek and it would not Surprise if he decided to take a step which has been in his mind for some v time but Cricket followers Hope that the australian Captain will come to no such decision for the present at any rate. Woodfull has been and still is too great a Man in australian Cricket for his retirement to be regarded with equanimity Oldfield s View i am totally opposed to body line bowl ing with a packed leg Field of four or five men close in and two on the Fence said Bert Oldfield the australian test wicketkeeper when he returned to Syd Ney from Adelaide today. It is not Only dangerous but it is definitely pre judicial to the game explaining the unfortunate incident in Adelaide which compelled him to retire from the game Oldfield said that the Ball which bit him was pitched on a line with tie wicket. I lost it and it bit me. Previously i had been ducking to Dodge Larwood s fliers. One Nae to be so careful with the Field placed in that Way. Larwood s Pace is such that a. Batsman has to make no his mind in a split second As to what shot to play or whether to play one or to Dock. The Bau May come stump High or it May Fly and with All these things to be considered it is a most difficult Job to defend without being caught in the my file of it All i lost tight of the Ball and to that extent most not Blamo anyone else Midfield was naturally reluctant to Dis cuss reports of bitter feeling Between the respective teams but he paid a great Tri Bute to his Captain. I have nothing but admiration he said for the magnificent manner in which Woodfull has handled Many difficult situations that have Arisen. As a Captain he is great and a a Man he w still greater. Undoubtedly he is the right Man in the right place and the team is with him to a Man Oldfield Hopes that the doctor s report will be subsequently sufficiently favourable to allow him to play in the remain in tests. I feel All right he said and my general condition gives no cause for alarm. I am of course in the doctor s hands and it would be unwise of me to disregard his views bumper hits boy the danger of the bumper was further illustrated when Leslie Springall aged eight of Mascot Sydney sustained a de pressed fracture of the Skull when be was struck by a Ball of this Type bowled by his brother while playing Cricket outside their Home. ? at the Royal South Sydney Hospital a surgeon performed a delicate feat by lift ing the Bone which had been pressing on the boy s brain. The boy now has a fight ing Chance of recovery. After the operation the boy turned to his father and said they knew the Lar Wood Etoff was the Only thing to get me out. Gee and i was going Well too Walker s test claims in Adelaide today there was keen Dis Cussion on Walker s Chance for the next test. Although love the new South Wales wicketkeeper is a better batsman than Walker he is not such a Good keeper and he is 14 years older than Walker. There was a definite swing in favor of him in Adelaide today. Andy Smith Captain of West Torrens said that Walker was smart and Safe behind the Sticks and was Peerless As a stumper. He did not know of a better Man than Wal Ker to take Oldfield s place. Clem Hill old time Champion left band batsman said today that if it were a question of wicket keeping alone there would be no doubt about Walker going in the australian team. Batsmen try to get out in Cricket burlesque in an astonishing Cricket burlesque on the Alberton Oval today the spectators saw batsmen trying to get out and bowlers and Fields men trying to keep them in. It happened in the match Between port Adelaide and Colts. Colts batting on a bowlers wicket had lost eight wickets with 35 minutes of play left when the Captain c. E. Pellew. Seeing that the Best thing to do was to Send port in As soon As possible on the wet wicket and in the failing Light rushed on to the Field and told the batsmen erred and Dangerfield to throw away their wickets. The port players however had other ideas. Deverson bowled to Dangerfield who spooned the Ball in the Hope of get Ting caught but no one attempted to take the catch. So he walked about five Yards out from his crease and waited to be stumped. Again no one moved. Not wishing to waste time he tried an other method. Deverson bowled again and while the Ball was still Yards Torii him Dangerfield turned his Back on it and drove Bis Bat Down on to the wicket. A. Walker replaced him. Facing Dever son he made a lunge Back toward the wicket but miscalculated by a few inches. He looked round amazed to see that the wicket was not broken. Next Ball he carried his Bat Back into the wicket. No mistake was made this time and the Side was All out without any addition to the score. Then rain started and it looked As if port would not Bat after All. But 15 minutes later g. W. And a. R. Harris opened the innings for the be asides. The anticipated collapse of the opening bats men did not eventuate and stumps were drawn with fort none for 15.
