Harold Larwood Bowling, 1933 Featured Print

Harold Larwood Bowling, 1933

Photograph of the English bowler, Harold Larwood, in action during the MCC tour of Australia, 1933. During that tour, D.R. Jardine, the MCC Captain, used the pace of Larwood to employ 'leg theory' (also known as 'bodyline' bowling). Although successful on the cricket field, the tactic was deemed unsportsmanlike by many Australians and soured Anglo-Australian relations.
