Profile

"Pom Pom" Fellows-Smith toured England in 1960, all his four Test appearances coming on that one trip. A powerful and uncompromising right-hand batsman whose trademark shots were a hammered off and a variety of leg-side swipes, he was not stranger to English conditions as he had won three cricket Blues at Oxford (as well as one for rugby) and also played for Northamptonshire from 1957, making 109 and 65 not out on debut. He had a disappointing tour in 1960 although he finished with 863 runs at 31.96 and 32 wickets with his legspin. He only played two more first-class matches - both for Free Foresters against his old university - after that tour. In all, of his 94 first-class appearances, only 14 were made in South Africa.
