 CB Fry
Fry was unbeaten as an England cricket captain and in later years was a member of the national selectors.
Fry and Ranjitsinjhi, one of the most memorable of partnerships both for Sussex and England, together changed the game of cricket significantly; it is said that nobody late-cut like the magical Indian prince, nobody on-drove like Fry.

Fry's bowling hit a storm of controversy and in a world where some of the most fearsome bowlers of the sub-continent are being accused of throwing it is worth having a look at history.
Fry was convinced Phillips had been sent to umpire the match with the express purpose of no-balling him and was equally convinced each and every ball he sent down the wicket was of textbook quality.
Fry had the first but not the second but was always confident that if he had pressed Ranji on the point (who was well capable of funding 10,000 sterling per annum) he would have been King of Albania.

Fry was impressed when Ranji "waved the first ball I bowled him to the picket fence of the pavilion".

 Telegraph | Sport | MCC turn heat on chairman Fry in showdown at Lord's   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Fry, grandson of the legendary sporting all-rounder CB Fry, has angered some committee members with what they alleged is a "presidential style" which lacks consultation – although his dedication to his job has never been questioned.
Fry's defence was that he had to do it this way because he wanted to comply with requests for confidentiality from other candidates.
Fry expected the committee to approve the scheme without argument but so ferocious was the opposition that he was forced to backtrack and proposals to be presented today will say members can only sell the tickets back to the club.

 The Herald
Charles Burgess Fry, who died 50 years ago this week, was a figure seemingly distilled from boys' comic fiction.
Fry stood unsuccessfully as Liberal parliamentary candidate for Brighton, polling 20,000 votes long after he had ceased to play for Sussex.
Fry made a subsequent career in sports journalism, pioneering analytical criticism, though his cricket reports were telephoned by his chauffeur.

 C. B. Fry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fry insisted that he be allowed to suspend one foot in front of the starting line, hovering in mid-air, above the ground.
Fry’s game was probably a little too refined for the hurly-burly of professional football and he never relished the physical excesses of some of the tackles.
After graduating from Oxford, Fry became a teacher at Repton, and later became Director of the Training Ship Mercury, a nautical school primarily designed to prepare boys for service in the Royal Navy (though this was primarily the interest of his wife Beatrice).

 Cricinfo - Players and Officials - C.B. Fry
The conjunction at the creases of CB Fry and KS Ranjitsinhji was a sight and an appeal to the imagination not likely ever to be repeated; Fry, nineteenth-century rationalist, batting according to first principles with a sort of moral grandeur, observing patience and abstinence.
As we consider Fry's enormous aggregates of runs summer by summer, we should not forget that he took part, during all the extent of his career, in only one Test match lasting more than three days, and that he never visited Australia as a cricketer.
The general notion is that Fry was not successful as an England batsman; and it is true that in Test matches he did not remain on his habitual peaks.

 BBC NEWS | UK | England | London | Blue plaque marks 'English hero'

Fry's England cricketing career, which began in 1899, included 26 tests, in which he scored 1223 at an average of 32.18.

 Who was CB Fry and what did he do? in The AnswerBank: History
CB Fry never became King of Albania - something that millions of people have similarly failed to do throughout history.
Fry did little to play down the adulation, which reflected academic brilliance (obtaining a first class degree with honours), intellectual prowess (a brilliant conversationalist, he was chums with Max Beerbohm and Hilaire Belloc as an undergraduate) and unprecedented sporting greatness.
Fry played football for England, (or should that be 'association football' - he was a famous snob).

 Cricinfo - New light shed on CB Fry: A brilliant cricketer, a memorable character
Fry had many gifts but emotional strength was not one of them - and nor was wealth.
His marriage to Beatrice Sumner may not have been unconnected with the fact that her lover Charles Hoare, with whom she'd been involved since she was 15 and who was the father of her illegitimate children, was rich enough to finance all three of them.
Fry and she were married for 48 years before she died but it seems clear that her banker lover, not CB, was the love of her life.

In a move of chivalry not seen since the days of CB Fry's Corinthians, Pires chose to weakly tap the ball allowing the on-rushing defenders to clear the danger.
Fry preferred his players to puff on Capstans during penalties, describing them as "a standing insult to sportsmen to have to play under a rule which assumes that players intend to trip, hack and push opponents and to behave like cads of the most unscrupulous kidney".
Pires explained his actions after the game: "The chaps and I had discussed the whole sorry mess of receiving a second penalty," he told baffled journalists.
