Profile

HILL, MR. ARTHUR JAMES LEDGER, a fine all-round cricketer who played for Marlborough College, Wiltshire, Cambridge University and Hampshire, died on September 6, aged 79. Born at Bassett, near Southampton, he was by profession a banker, and excelled at most games. Tall and stylish, Hill was a splendid batsman with a free, natural approach to the game. He was also a useful fast bowler before taking to lobs, and in addition he was a reliable field, notably at short slip. In first-class cricket Hill hit 20 hundreds, scoring altogether 9,995 runs, averaging 27.91, and he took 278 wickets, average 29.60. He went with Lord Hawke's team to India in 1892-93, America 1894, and South Africa 1895-96, and with M.C.C. to Argentine 1911-12. He played in three Tests in South Africa, scoring 124 at Cape Town.
