Turner’s prowess extended beyond bowling, demonstrating his batting abilities by scoring a memorable maiden century at The Oval during the initial leg of the tour. However, despite three highly productive seasons, his performance started to wane due to unfavorable conditions caused by El Niño in Australia during 1888/89. As a result, Turner’s wicket count plummeted to a mere 29 in six games, and the following season brought even fewer successes.

Nonetheless, Turner’s reputation as the supreme bowler for English conditions remained unscathed. In 1890, he continued to impress selectors by securing an impressive tally of 179 first-class wickets (215 wickets across all games). Unfortunately, despite his remarkable achievements, Turner couldn’t break England’s dominant hold on Test cricket during that period.

It’s worth noting that Charles Turner holds a remarkable record in cricket history, boasting the distinction of achieving the most consecutive five-wicket hauls in an innings. He accomplished this exceptional feat a staggering six consecutive times, further solidifying his status as one of the greatest bowlers of his time.
