Description - Tony Lock by Alan Hill

Tony Lock was an aggressive, attacking left-arm spinner who ideally complemented the subtleties of Jim Laker's off-spin when Surrey were winning the County Championship between 1952 and 1958. This biography tackles the 'throwing' issue in the 1960s that led to his emigration to Australia, where he became reputed as a fine professional and coach.
