Arthur Wellard, born April 8, 1902, was a useful bowling all-rounder, whose big hitting ability has made him a legend in the cricketing chronicles. He scored 12, 485 runs in First-Class cricket at a rather modest average of 19.73. With the ball, he was distinctly more successful, 1,614 wickets at 24.35. What remains amazing is that the sixes he hit numbered over 500, amounting to roughly a quarter of his career runs. Arunabha Sengupta looks back at the career of the man who scored more than a quarter of his runs with sixes.
