Victor Trumper honed his cricket skills in the streets of Surry Hills in the late 1800s. He joined his first team in his teens, and by his early 30s, he captained New South Wales. In his first-class career, he managed 16,939 runs from 255 matches, with a highest score of 300*, but it was said that reducing Trumper's batsmanship to statistics was like reducing Mozart's compositions to simply "adding up the notes". A proficient all-rounder, he also took 172 catches and 64 wickets. Trumper died of kidney disease at 37 in 1915, sparking the then-longest funeral procession in Sydney's history: 20,000 people formed a 5.6km trail behind the cortege. A stand in his honour was officially opened at the Sydney Cricket Ground on December 13, 2008. This photograph was taken at The Oval in London around 1902. (Pic: @portraitau)
