THE GREATEST KEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Port Adelaide Gazette — 24 January 1930

THE GREATEST 'KEEPER. The death of Dick Lilley, the Champion wicket-keeper, revived the question of who was the greatest ?keeper the game h?P produced. Lilley. in a book written many years . ago declared that J. Mc. Blackham was the greatest wicket keeper, he had ever had the privilege of. seeing. 'His enthusiasm was boundless, nis dexterity- remarkable,' wrote Lilley, 'and his fairness unquestionable. There was no straining after effect riori any suggestion of jfche acrobat, ' which is occasionally an unfortunate feature of some wicket-keepers. His judgment was so perfect in estimat ing the probable destination of a ball after delivery that, together with his method of placing himself for the readiest means of taking it he would stop the most difficult de livery with the maximum of ease.'
