Profile

Louis Anthony Stricker, a former South African Test batsman, died at Cape Town on February 5 at the age of 75. He was born at Kimberley on May 26, 1884, and represented Transvaal in domestic cricket, scoring an innings of 101 for them at Pretoria in 1909-10 against the M.C.C. touring side, when he and J. W. Zulch shared an opening stand of 215. He played in four of the Tests against England that season, and was a member of the South African side in Australia in 1910-11. In his first match on Australian soil, against South Australia at Adelaide, he scored 146, and repeated this score in a minor match later on. He visited England in 1912, when he took part in the Triangular Tournament, but he had only a moderate tour, his highest score being 99 against Hampshire at Bournemouth. Altogether he played in 13 Tests for South Africa and scored 342 runs at an average of 14.25.
