Profile

George Wells, better known to the cricketers of his day as Tiny Wells died on January 23 in the sixtieth year of his age. He was born on November 2, 1831. Wells was probably one of the shortest men who ever acquired a reputation in the cricket-field. It would be an exaggeration to say that he was ever quite a first-rate player, but for a number of seasons he batted with considerable success, being associated with both Sussex and Middlesex. It was a peculiarity of his batting that he took his guard close to the stumps, and then came forward to meet the ball. He was a member of the first English team that went to Australia, under the captaincy of H. H. Stephenson, in the season of 1861-62.
