Plum Warner

Plum Warner (1873-1963)
Wisden Cricketer of the year 1904 and a special portrait 1921
Actually born in the West Indies but captain of Middlesex and England and had the misfortune to be Manager of the
England touring party to Australia in 1932/33 (bodyline). He was much too nice a gentleman to have been subjected
to that!


First Edition cover of Ronald Mason's book on "Plum" Warner's last season in which Middlesex won the County Championship in the very last match against their Arch Rivals Surrey!
