Profile

Louis Joseph Tancred, the famous Transvaal and South African cricketer, died at Johannnesburg, on July 30, aged 58. He was well-known in England for he made four visits with representative teams, in 1901, 1904, 1907 and 1912. On his last tour he took over the captaincy from Frank Mitchell in three of the six Test matches which his team played against England and Australia in the Triangular Tournament. Possessed of abundant patience, Tancred was an excellent opening batsman for he could wear down the bowling for other players to punish. He also hit powerfully and though a pronounced crouch spoilt his style he was especially good against fast bowling. During his trip to England in 1907 he was handicapped for a long time through illness and was only at his best during the last ten days of the tour. His highest score in a Test match was 97, at Johannesburg, against Australia in 1902, when J. Darling's team visited South Africa on the way home from England. His aggregate in 26 innings against England and Australia was 530 with an average of 21.20.
