Bob Dubery:
   After one Edgar Ellis Achong, a [left-arm leg-spinner] 
   West Indian of Chinese extraction. He played test cricket 
   between 1929 & 1935.

   Achong bowled a well-regarded England player  who, as he walked 
   away in disgust at being totally bamboozled by the debutante 
   Achong said "I never thought I'd see the day I was bowled by a 
   Chinaman".
