57 thousand runs scored in 31 years career, 170 centuries: 41st birthday made his career highest score

In the
 world of cricket, they have become big batsmen, but the name of England's Patsy Hendren has never been discussed, to which they are entitled. He is the batsman who has scored over 57,000 runs and scored 170 centuries in First Class Cricket. The batsman who hit 272 half-centuries in his 833 first-class career. The player who played cricket for 21 years and maintained complete dominance over spinners. We are talking about him today because he was born on this very day 131 years ago. Let us tell you about Petsy's life and career

Petsy began working as a groundstaff at Lord's at the age of 16. He made his debut for Middlesex in 1907. However the spectators damaged the pitch, which led to the cancellation of the match. He scored his first century in 1911. He played 432 matches with football clubs.

Double century scored on 41st birthday

Patsy Hendre has played 51 Tests in her career, scoring 3525 runs at an impressive average of 47.63. Hendren also scored 7 centuries and 21 half centuries in this prestigious format. His highest score in Test cricket is an unbeaten 205 which he scored in Trinidad against the West Indies in 1929-30. Interestingly, he played this innings on his 41st birthday. Patsy had mastered the art of playing against spinners. An interesting thing about him is that he played football for many clubs. It also includes the legendary football club Manchester City.

833 57611 runs in first series matches

But this is his first series career, which put him on the list of great players. Petsy played 833 first-class matches in his 31-year career, in which he scored 57,611 runs. He averaged 50.80. It includes 170 centuries and 272 half-centuries. His highest score in first-class cricket is 301 not out. As far as Petsy is concerned, only Jack Hobbs and Frank Woolley have scored the most runs in first-class cricket. Hobbes has scored 61,237 runs while Woolley has scored 58,969 runs.
