Profile

Arthur Lennox Ochse, died at Middlebury, South Africa in May, aged 49. A fast bowler, he played for Eastern Province and in 1929 visited England with H. G. Deane's team. During the tour he took 52 wickets and headed the Test bowling averages with 10 wickets at a cost of 31.70 runs apiece. He played in three Test Matches, one of them against England in South Africa in 1927. He bore the leading part in the dismissal of the M.C.C. side for 49 by Eastern Province at Port Elizabeth in 1928, taking five wickets for 31 runs. This effort was not enough to bring victory, M.C.C. winning by ten wickets.
