Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William James "Bill" Whitty was an Australian Test cricketer who played 14 Tests from 1909 to 1912. Born in Sydney, Whitty had only played junior cricket before he was noticed by Test batsman Victor Trumper, who recommended him for coaching and gave him the opportunity to bowl to the New South Wales state team. In 1907, at the age of 21, Whitty made his first-class debut for New South Wales against Queensland at the Sydney Cricket Ground, taking 3 wickets. This was the only first-class match Whitty played for his home state, as he was recruited to Adelaide by Clem Hill to play for South Australia in 1908. Whitty played 5 first-class games in the 1908-09 Australian season, including one match for a "Rest of Australia" team against the Australian XI, where he took 3 wickets. Over the entire season, Whitty took 11 wickets with a strike rate of 96.3, which was enough to earn him selection into the Australian team to tour England in 1909show more
