Farewell Test for Neil Harvey and Alan Davidson

Farewell Test for Neil Harvey and Alan Davidson

On this day in 1963 it was farewell time for Neil Harvey and Alan Davidson - two of Australia's greatest Test cricketers. The fifth Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground ended in a draw while the Ashes series too ended without a winner - it was the first five-match series in Australia to be drawn. The left-handed batsman Harvey finished with 6149 runs with 21 hundreds and 24 half-centuries. In his final Test, he scored 22 and 28. Davidson, a left-arm pacer and a handy left-handed batsman, ended his Test career with 186 wickets, including 14 five-wicket hauls and two 10-fers, along with 1328 runs. He picked up three-wicket hauls in both innings of his final Test.
