Profile

Frederick Fane took over as England captain in Australia in 1907-08 when Arthur Jones was injured, and also led England in his last two Test appearances, in South Africa two years later. Fane was a good-looking front-foot player whose one Test century came at Johannesburg in 1905-06, a match that England nonetheless lost comfortably. He was also Jack Hobbs's opening partner in Hobbs's first Test, at Melbourne in 1907-08. In that match, Fane top-scored in the second innings as England squeaked home by one wicket. Fane also represented Essex with distinction for 20 years, and scored close to 20,000 first-class runs.
