Profile

One of the best swing bowlers of the past half-century, Joseph Titus Partridge, has finished his days in pathetic degradation. Rhodesian-born Partridge, for some years a vagrant alcoholic, turned a gun on himself on June 7 in a police station in a suburb of Harare after having been arrested for not paying a bill at a hotel. He was 55.
