Profile

Barlow Carkeek, died in Melbourne on February 21. Born on October 17, 1878, he was in his 59th year. When he came to England as deputy wicket-keeper to H. Carter in 1909, he did not take part in a Test match but full responsibility for this arduous task came to him in 1912 when England won the Triangular Tournament. Rather short and sturdily built, Carkeek was sound rather than brilliant. Certainly he did not approach the standard set by Blackham or Kelly; and Carter built up a much higher reputation. A moderate batsman, Carkeek averaged only 9 for 29 innings during the 1912 tour and his highest score in six Test matches was 6 not out. He first played for Victoria in 1904 and in representative cricket for the State he averaged 13.28, for an aggregate of 1,063, with a highest innings of 68.
