Profile

Jack Hill, 51, who died in Melbourne on August 11, was a topspin bowler who took seven wickets in two Tests at Trent Bridge and Old Trafford in 1953. They included leading batsmen in May, Graveney, W. J. Edrich and Kenyon and he twice dislodged Bailey. Hill took 63 wickets on the tour and in a third Test in 1955 dismissed Holt at Bridgetown. Lifting his front foot high, almost a goose- step, Hill delivered with a leg-break roll, but needed responsive turf for the ball to turn at his pace. Often around the leg stump, he was a difficult bowler for wicketkeepers and one sharp blow on an ankle knocked Len Maddocks' legs from under him.
