Profile

Owen Dunell, who died at Lyons, France on October 21, was South Africa's first captain, leading the team in the match of dubious standard against England at Port Elizabeth in 1888-89 that is now accepted as South Africa's first Test. Dunell played only one other first-class game outside the two Tests on this tour, when he led a Port Elizabeth team against Natal in December 1889. He was born in Port Elizabeth, and later went into business there but was educated at Oxford and Eton, where he played no cricket but excelled at tennis.
