Ed

Edward Charles Davies

With too many runs to count to his name, plenty of half centuries and a top score of 108 not out, Ed is Henleaze Old Boys' all time leading run scorer. Having provided the stiff backbone required to many a HOB innings, Davies has an excellent knowledge of the game and a safe pair of hands to match. With deliveries so relentlessly accurate you could have sworn you were watching five replays of the first ball, his bowling at the death of a match is vital to the Old Boys because if the batsman misses, he hits the timbers.

Strengths: - A fine all rounder, has a knack of protecting his wicket (Dravid style)

Weaknesses: - Much like Boycott, he likes to 'build' his innings which is something 20 over cricket doesn't give you time to do

Interesting fact: - In a 50 over match, batting second, Ed achieved a league record of scoring the lowest amount of runs for a player who has managed to bat through the entire innings! Score……………9 not out! (Some would say that's a good strike rate for him!)
