Wally Hammond - sensational stats

I hadn't realised quite how good Wally Hammond's stats were until I read this piece about how he was postumously inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame yesterday. Not only an average of 58 but also a wicket and more than one catch per Test.

Compares pretty well with the best batting all-rounder around at the moment Jacques Kallis, who has an average of 55 but takes nearly 2 wickets per Test.
