Profile

Hunter Scott Thomas Laurie Hendry, known as Stork on account of his height, who died on December 16, 1988, aged 93, was at the time of his death the oldest surviving Test and Sheffield Shield cricketer. He first played for Australia at Trent Bridge in 1921, several days after his 26th birthday, and between then and 1928-29 he played in eleven Tests without ever doing full justice to his natural all-round ability. He scored 335 runs with an average of 20.93 and took sixteen wickets at 40.00, but it needs saying that, given the strength of some of the Australian sides in which he appeared, he was almost surplus to requirements. Circumstances as much as any personal failing led to his disappointing Test match figures.
