Profile

Robert Graham was a medium-pacer who was selected to play for South Africa against England on the strength of his 5 for 54 against the tourists for Cape Colony. His two performances (in what were his third and fourth first-class matches) were unimpressive. He was selected to tour England with South Africa in 1901, although he failed to seriously press for a place in their Test side. His finest hour came when he took 8 for 90 against Worcestershire in a tied match. A tail-ender of limited ability, his only first-class fifty came when he top-scored with 63* against Leicestershire while batting at No. 11. Martin Williamson
