Profile

Howard Francis was a right-hand batsman who appeared infrequently - and without any real success - for Gloucestershire between 1890 and 1894 before emigrating to South Africa where he represented Western Province in Currie Cup matches until 1902. He appeared in both Tests against England in 1898-99 but, as with the rest of his first-class career, he did little of note.
