A Colossus in the history of cricket, Grace amassed 54211 runs, studded with 124 hundred and also produced 2809 wickets, including 64 ten-fer in an illustrious first-class career spanning 43 years. His stocky girth and leviathan beard, which hung over the ball while stroking it often deceived to mask his athletic abilities.

Grace, who simultaneously scored an unbeaten 224 for England against Surrey, won the 440 yards hurdling title in 70 seconds at the National Olympic Games at Crystal Palace in August 1866. The bearded wonder also played football for the Wanderers Club in London.
