Historians and cricket- a miscellany (4)

I think he does qualify given the quality of most of his books ( esp. Asquith) . In the serialisation of the new biography of Roy Jenkins in the Forger's Gazette, it appears that he plucked up the courage to approach the person who would become the long suffering Mrs Jenkins when buoyed by self confidence at having done particularly well in a cricket match at Oxford.
That sticks in my mind more than the  bit about him having a relationship with Tony Crosland does.
