Profile

Wisden obituary
Dr Roland James Pope, who died at Sydney on July 27, aged 88, was a frequent visitor to England with Australian teams, though not as a playing member. Born on February 18, 1864, he was educated at Hutchins School, Hobart, Tasmania, gaining a place in the eleven as a batsman and bowler of lobs, and he later played for Sydney University. Subsequently, while studying medicine, he was in the Edinburgh University side. In 1884-85, after hitting 170 not out for Melbourne Zingari against Richmond, he represented New South Wales in two matches against Victoria, and he appeared for a Combined XI of Australia and for his State against Alfred Shaw's team. An MD and FRCS of Edinburgh and an ophthalmic specialist, he became a member of MCC in 1887.
