Passage

There are dull, mechanic fellows who turn out runs with as little emotion as a machine turns out pins. There is no colour, no enthusiasm, no character in their play. Cricket is not an adventure to them, it is a business. It was so with Shrewsbury. His technical perfection was astonishing; but the soul of the game was wanting in him. There was no sunshine in his play, no shift surprise of splendid unselfishness. And without these things, without gaiety, daring and the spirit of sacrifice cricket is a dead thing.
