Description

The remarkable story of Surrey and England cricketer Jack Crawford. A schoolboy prodigy who took Edwardian cricket by storm, the all-rounder became England's youngest Test player, yet a spectacular fallout led to a life ban from his county. After emigration to Australia, Crawford became one of the world's great all-rounders - amid more controversy.
