Profile

Wisden Obituary
Charles Llewellyn was a great allrounder in his day. A forcing left-hand batsman, a slow to medium left-arm bowler and a splendid fielder, particularly at mid-off, Llewellyn, who was born at Pietermaritzburg, appeared in 15 Test matches for South Africa, five against England and ten against Australia, between 1895 and 1912. It was as a professional for Hampshire that he did his best work, however, and between 1899 and 1910 he hit 8,772 runs for the county, average 27.58, took 711 wickets for 24.66 runs apiece and brought off 136 catches. Five times he scored over 1,000 runs and five times dismissed more than 100 batsmen in a season, achieving the double in 1901 and repeating the performance in all matches in 1908 and 1910.
