DID U KNOW...

who captained the English team in the 1975 World Cup?
(23 November 2001)

The first large-scale limited overs tournament ever, the 1975 Prudential World Cup generated tremendous excitement. The one-day game was cricket perfectly tailored for the spectator but still retaining the class and dignity of the five-day version; accordingly, it was only appropriate that the World Cup be staged in the country of the game's birth: England.

The English side, bidding for the title as the home team, included many names that are now familiar to followers of cricket. Dennis Amiss, who made the first World Cup century, opened the batting. Tony Greig was the all-important all-rounder in the side. Keith Fletcher, Alan Knott, and Chris Old were some of the other heavyweights in the side.

The captain, however, was a batsman from Kent and Essex who was not to make too much of a splash in the record books, at least in terms of a playing career. But it can be assured that his appointment as match referee will be remembered with much more fervour than his strokes on the field. Michael Henry Denness may have never toured South Africa as a player, but his deeds in that country has ensured cricket lovers around the globe will not forget him too soon.
