Profile

Cec Dixon was an offspinner who bowled at almost medium pace whose career spanned the Great War. He was a surprise call-up for the third Test against England in 1913-14 (only his fourth first-class match) as in his previous two appearnaces that season he had taken 4 for 147, including 2 for 92 against the tourists ten days earlier. Dixon made a pair and, opening the bowling, took 2 for 62 (dismissing Jack Hobbs and Jack Hearne) as South Africa lost by an innings. After the war he toured England with South Africa in 1924, taking 32 wickets at 26.71 without coming close to making the Test side. He retired at the end of that tour.
