Profile

Ron Hamence was a compact attacking batsman whose one failing was against genuine pace. His early years were disrupted by the war, but he made his debut against England in the last Test of the 1946-47 series, impressing with a dogged 30 not out, and two Tests against India the following summer.. He toured England in 1948 but was an almost permanent 12th man and an extremely popular and good-humoured tourist. After Bill Brown died in March 2008, Hamence, at 92, became Australia's oldest living player and one of four surviving members of the 1948 Invincibles tour. He died in March 2010.
