Profile

Although Ronald Draper played in only two Tests, both against Australia in 1949-50, he hit a hundred before lunch four times in first-class cricket and occupies an important place in South African cricket as the first to score two centuries in a Currie Cup match, for Griqualand West v Border at Kimberley in 1952-53. He also made a hundred - 114 against Orange Free State - on his first-class debut in 1945-46.
