Who was Affie Jarvis?

Arthur Harwood Jarvis was an Australian wicket-keeper who played for Australia and South Australia.

His Test cricket debut was against England at the MCG on 15 January 1885 and his last Test was also against England at the same ground on 1 March 1895.

Jarvis is most unlucky that his time clashed with Jack Blackham The Prince of Wicketkeepers, who held down the spot in the Australian Test Team that Jarvis would probably otherwise have had.

Nonetheless Jarvis had a fantastic career as the wicketkeeper for South Australia, and despite the presence of Blackham still played 11 Tests for Australia and toured England.
