Francis Buckland was in the Eton XI in 1871-72-73 and the Oxford XI from 1875 to 1877 inclusive. At Eton he bowled slow medium-pace with a languid action but he lost some of his zip while at Oxford and was less effective. In three years at Eton he took 36 wickets against Winchester and 26 against Harrow.
