What about the broken arm
Colin Cowdrey returned to the crease with his arm in plaster and stood at the non-striker's end while Dave Allen blocked the last two balls for a draw. England won the Third Test, but lost the series 3-1 and Cowdrey was unable to play for the rest of the season. He also missed the next series with India because of broken arm.
