The d’Oliveira decision by John Arlott

M C C have never made a sadder, more dramatic, or potentially more damaging decision than in omitting d’Oliveira from their team to tour South Africa. Fifteen players have been named. The sixteenth will be a bowler; Jeff Jones of Glamorgan, if he is demonstrably fit after an operation on an elbow. If he is not, Higgs will probably be offered the place.
