Profile

Fred Susskind., collapsed and died on July 9, aged 66, at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, of which he was a member for thirty years. Educated at University College School and Cambridge University, he played in a few games for Middlesex before returning home and assisting Transvaal, for whom he obtained 2,595 runs, average 49.90, in Currie Cup matches, hitting six centuries. He and H. B. Cameron set up a Transvaal record when adding 207 for the sixth wicket against Eastern Province in 1926-27. In 1924 Fred Susskind, as he was always known, was one of H. W. Taylor's South African team in England, playing in all five Test matches. He was second in the Test batting averages with 268 runs, average 33.50, and in all games scored 1,469 runs, including two centuries, average 32.64. A tall batsman, he was often cramped in style and his proneness to pad-play caused a good deal of criticism during the tour.
