Jim Laker will always be remembered for his bowling in the Test match at Old Trafford in 1956, when he took 19 Australian wickets for 90, 9 for 37 in the first innings and 10 for 53 in the second.
No other bowler has taken more than seventeen wickets in a first-class match, let alone in a Test match.
This book looks back on the life of the man.
