- JACK WILDERMUTH and his great uncle Tom Veivers epitomise the long and short of Australian cricket tours to England.
- Wildermuth’s Twenty20 tour of England next month will feature just one game – potentially he will bowl just four overs – before the squad moves on to Zimbabwe.
- The genial allrounder tossed down an extraordinary 95.1 overs of off-spin in one innings in the drawn Test against England at Manchester in 1964, the second longest one-innings bowling stint of all time.
- BOOF: Lehmann takes up new role “I spoke to Jack last night and told him that my tour there in 1964 lasted six months and we played every county and some twice – things have changed a bit,’’ Veivers said.
- Wildermuth would have to bowl his full four-over allocation in 24 T20 games for Australia before he matched his great uncle’s workload from that day of eternal toil in Manchester.
