Max Bonnell, making his second appearance this quarter, weaves an account of the match with a short biography of McKibbin, examining among other things the question of how such an accomplished player came to fall into obscurity so quickly, and the considerable uncertainty that surrounds parts of his life after cricket. Needless to say, it is an excellent read.
