Whysall in 1926
|Born||31 October 1887
Woodborough, Nottinghamshire, England
|Died||11 November 1930 (aged 43)
Whysall was a right-handed batsman who did little before the First World War but then developed in the 1920s into a solid and consistent opener in the increasingly successful Nottinghamshire side. He toured Australia as a member of the 1924-25 side, acting as reserve wicket-keeper and playing in three Test matches. He scored 75 at Adelaide and 76 at Melbourne.
After being the leading batsman in Nottinghamshire's County Championship-winning side of 1929, Whysall was recalled to the England Test team for the decisive match of the 1930 series against Australia. The move was not a success. Whysall scored only 13 and 10, and was criticised for his lack of mobility in the field, as England lost by an innings.
Whysall was a Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1925.
