Wally Hammond’s career average of 58.45 after playing 85 Tests was simply a testament to the man’s greatness. Making his debut against South Africa in 1927, Hammond’s Test career spanned two decades, during which time he amassed 7249 runs. Hammond had a brilliant conversion rate, as out of the 46 times he crossed the 50-run mark in Test cricket, he managed to convert 22 of them into centuries. Hammond’s bowling too was more than decent. He took 83 wickets, including 5 for 36 in an innings against South Africa at Johannesburg in 1927.
