Yorkshire’s most significant batsman of the nineteenth century was George Ulyett. He was the first player to score over 10,000 runs for the county. Nicknamed ‘Happy Jack’, he approached his cricket with much enthusiasm and joviality. The county’s first great pair of opening batsmen was Jack Brown and John Tunnicliffe. Each scored over 15,000 runs and against Derbyshire at Chesterfield in 1898 set a world record of 554 for the highest stand for any wicket and this stood for 34 years.
