Your obituary of Arthur McIntyre (8 February) reminded me of an episode I witnessed during Surrey's ascendancy in cricket in the 1950s when Kent still played at Blackheath,
writes Andrew Belsey. Kent were batting poorly against Surrey and the young Colin Cowdrey was at the crease.
He played a ball with a very dead bat and the ball rolled just three or four feet to the off-side. McIntyre darted out from behind the stumps to collect the ball, but then noticed that Cowdrey was standing outside the crease with his bat off the ground. Mcintyre darted back to the wicket, took off the bails and Cowdrey was out. This was typical of McIntyre's quick thinking.
