The third test at Headingley 1926: Bill Woodfull and Warren 'Curly' Bardsley open the batting for Australia, but Bardsley's out for a duck. Enter Charlie Macartney, who would go on to reach a century in an hour and 40 minutes, 112 not out at lunch. A packed crowd watches the play unfold, including an unfortunate blow to the toe for Woodfull.
