Profile

Lieut. Allan Ivo Steel (Coldstream Guards), son of A. G. Steel; killed October 8, aged 25. Eton XI, 1910-1911; Middlesex, 1912. Calcutta C.C. Member of M.C.C. since 1912. A good slow bowler at Eton, Steel had obviously modelled his style on that of his famous father. His school records were excellent -- 42 wickets with an average of 12.71 in 1910, and 47 wickets with an average of 14.53 in 1911. He fairly divided honours with Fowler in 1910 on the whole season's work, and took the other two wickets when Fowler, with eight wickets for 23 runs, beat Harrow in such sensational fashion at Lord's. Steel was improving fast as a batsman when he left Eton, and would no doubt have developed considerably if he had gone to Cambridge instead of taking up a business appointment in India.
