Sherlock Holmes was created, of course, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who happened to be a handy cricketer. He played a few first-class games for the MCC. In one of these, against London County at the Crystal Palace on May 25th 1900, he took the wicket of one W G Grace - his only f-c wicket, though the great man had made 110 when he was out. Regards.
