Ian Davis was a middle order batsman who did very well on that tour
along with a couple of hundreds from Sobers & Lloyd.

Another incident was the collision between Sobers & Lloyd while in
the process of running a single. They were both watching the ball.

Ian Davis was an australian batsman of the 50's (i think, or is it Ian Craig).
the person you mean is Charlie Davis, whose unfortunate injury in the 2nd test,
 sustained while at the nets, set up india's 1st victory in the WI.
