A naturally gifted strokemaker, Rolland Beaumont suffered from becoming too cautious on the big occasion and he never did his talents justice in any of his five Tests. He toured England in 1912 for the Trinangular Tournament, making his debut against Australia at Manchester when he scored 37 and 12 (batting at Nos 9 and 10). In seven other innings - later that summer and against England in 1913-14 - he managed 22 runs.
