RussellEndean, the South African Test cricketer who has died aged 79, played a vital role in stiffening his country's batting during the early 1950s; he was also one of the most brilliant fielders in the history of the game.
Endean's greatest hour came in the second Test at Melbourne, when he batted for seven hours in the second innings to make a chanceless 162 not out and set up South Africa's victory by 82 runs.
Endean was chosen for South Africa's tour of England in 1951 as the first-choice wicketkeeper; in the event, though, the superb performances of John Waite behind the stumps kept him out of the Test side.
As the ball came down toward his stumps, he hit it away, obstructing the wicketkeeper RussellEndean from taking the catch.
Coincidentally, RussellEndean was the first man given out handled the ball in a test match.
If either batsman is out 'obstructing the field', any runs completed before the offence, together with any penalty extras and the penalty for a No ball or Wide are still scored, except when the offence stopped a catch being caught when only penalties are still scored.
