John Embury scored 46 runs for an England XI against Hobart in 1986. Why is his name in the first class records?

John Emburey hit all his 46 runs for an England XI v Tasmania at Hobart in 1986-87 (Mike Gatting's tour) in boundaries - a six and 10 fours. It remains the highest score in all first-class cricket to have been compiled entirely in boundaries. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/sports_talk/1658234.stm
